Afton gives politicians a free pass to march, but limits numbers
Politicians will get a break in this year's Afton Fourth of July Parade.
Last year, Afton City Council started charging politicians a fee of $50 to march in the city's annual Fourth of July Parade. However, City Council was informed during its June 19 meeting that Afton cannot charge politicians a higher fee than other parade participants.
Afton does not charge a fee for parade participants.
"You have to treat everybody equally," City Attorney Fritz Knaak said.
