Everett: Ice cream vendor contract OK’d

People can keep buying ice cream at city parks for the next three years.

This is because the Everett City Council approved last week a contract with companies AMH Ice Cream and Fun Times Ice Cream.

Both companies will pay a total of $5,815 annually under the three-year contract. This is $1,600 more than what the companies paid before. In exchange, they can sell their products at city parks.

Each company will pay a monthly fee between April and September.

The money will go to cover the parks and recreation department operations costs.
