On Wednesday, the Tallahassee City Commission unanimously agreed to sponsor the Saturday in the Park concert scheduled for this weekend downtown. Commissioners approved just under $1,200 to cover law enforcement and general park use. One of the festival organizers, Jean Bates of the Midtown Merchants Association, says she hopes this is just the beginning of the city’s involvement in the concert series, which has two more events scheduled this summer.
