HARRISBURG, Ore. - In a vote of 2-0, the Linn County Board of Commissioners voted Wednesday to revoke the permit for the Willamette Country Music Festival.

The action follows a financial controversy that had cast doubt on the festival's future. Multiple vendors reported that they had not been paid.

The festival had been operating under a permit that was to be in effect from 2017 to 2021.

County board chairman Roger Nyquist and board member John Lindsey voted to revoke the permit.

Board member Will Tucker was absent from the meeting because he had accompanied the U.S. Capitol Christmas Tree to Washington, D.C.

The board will vote on a formal resolution to revoke the permit at a meeting next week.

The permit issue was the only item on the agenda for Wednesday’s hearing.
