Buffalo Bill Days Committee answers questions; receives city commendationBy John TorgrimsonMonday, August 27, 2001

“You know how word goes around in a small town,” Council member John Dollar told the Lanesboro City Council on Monday. “But I have had 20 people talk to me about this, so that is why I am bringing it up.”

Dollar, in a written statement to the council, wrote that he had been told that someone was paid $500 a day to oversee the Buffalo Bill Day events this year. And he wanted to know why this was done and how it was determined to pay this much?

Lydia O’Connor, co-chair of the Buffalo Bill Day Committee, who was reporting to the city council about the August 3-5 event, responded to Dollar by saying that 20 volunteers worked on several committees and that no one was paid for their work.

She did say, however, that the committee did hire an overall coordinator to manage the beer and brat tent, which she described as an “entity in itself.”

“Coordinating the beer and brat tent is an overwhelming job,” O’Connor told the council. “One that takes more than a few days, with all the ordering and organizing.”

O’Connor said that last year the Lanesboro Swim & Rec Club ran the tent by themselves, but this year there were different charities covering various shifts.

“This was our first time to do this, and we wanted to have someone coordinating the different groups and shifts so that things ran smoothly,” O’Connor told the council. “We asked the people who ran the event in the past how much to pay this person, but we were told that they had no idea.”

O’Connor said that, there being no precedent, they paid the tent coordinator $1,000 for the event. Mayor John Brose interjected that this amount was determined after the event was already finished.

Although his name was not mentioned during the council proceedings, Wes Hoyhtya, the husband of city administrator Barbara Hoyhtya, coordinated the beer and brat tent which generated $21,000. Each charity shift earned $900 after expenses were deducted.

Council member Peggy Hanson asked who was in charge of Buffalo Bill Days, and when told that Lanesboro ACT ran the event responded that people should take their concerns to ACT.

“This is not a city issue,” Hanson said. “These people should talk to the ACT board.”

Council member Hal Cropp told the council that they should put this $1,000 payment in the context of a very .....
