RHINELANDER - Not many people plan big events.

But in a tourist town like Rhinelander, parades, car shows and festivals are a big part of the economy.

Those big events need a lot of preparation.

That's why Rhinelander's Planning Committee wants to make events easier to organize.

The city's Protection of Persons and Property Committee is working on a new special event packet.

It will tell event organizers everything they need to know to plan a major event.

Fire Chief Terry Williams says this will help any agency put an event together.

"The chamber has done a ton of large events, special events, but this packet, even for the chamber will help them out to have a check list of everything they need to do." said Rhinelander Fire Chief, Terry Williams.

The packet isn't completely done, but Chief Williams says you can get a draft at the fire department.
