The Human Relations Committee met this evening to hear both sides of the continuing debate over the use of the word Ypsitucky to promote a Labor Day music festival sponsored by the Depot Town Community Development Corporation. The commission decided to schedule another meeting as soon as possible to continue the discussion.

Officials from the DTCDC told the commission it was too late to change the name, they were already promoting the event.

HRC Chair Cliff Larkins talks after the meeting how the issue came before the commission.

Correction: Mr. Larkins name is misspelled in the title of the video. The error is ours and we apologize to Mr. Larkins for misspelling his name.
