MAYVILLE – This weekend’s kickoff of the Chautauqua Lake Pops Concert series is on hold amid a lawsuit seeking to stop the production.
The group’s founder Dan Dalpra tells WNY News Now he was waiting until noon today to make the final call about the fate of Saturday’s show.
He was looking for further guidance from the State DEC after a lawsuit was filed last week in Chautauqua County Supreme Court.
After not hearing from the DEC, he says Saturday’s production will not take place.
Plaintiffs from Mayville, Dewittville and Ohio accuse the pops, Dalpra and the Village of Mayville of attempting to operate without proper environmental permits.
Specifically, some are upset about the noise the concerts cause.
Furthermore, Dalpra is disappointed in the whole debacle, saying he has community support citing a petition gaining over two thousand signatures in favor of the show.
