The Blue Angels historically draw the annual festival’s largest crowds.
Commissioner Jeanine Easterday said the cap hasn’t been increased since about 2007 and it’s appropriate to take another look, though not for this year’s festival.
“Those are all concerns that we will address moving forward but this is not a festival you can change midstream,” Easterday said. “Their budget is already set.”
Easterday, who chaired the committee of three commissioners, said she is confident the full commission will approve the recommended contract when it comes before them.
