Mint Hill weighs future of Madness at January meeting

Mint Hill Madness, the yearly festival that has been presented by the Chamber of Commerce for the last three decades, took center stage at last Thursday’s Board of Commissioners’ meeting. 
The Mint Hill Chamber of Commerce is relinquishing their management of the event turning that responsibility over to a nonprofit organization that will be created solely to manage Mint Hill Madness.
Nancy Bradley and Marty Cocking of RelyLocal,  presented the board with information and plans for the future of the festival, citing the mission of the new Madness, “to bring back vitality to Mint Hill Madness by repurposing the festival to support local 501(c)3 charitable organizations to foster community and help rebuild economic growth in Mint Hill.”
The proposition is to create a board of directors that will manage the nonprofit, Mint Hill Madness, which will make all executive decisions regarding the festival.
