Calvary Reformed Church is looking to host an end of the summer block party.

However, this event will require elected leaders to OK a request to close off Second Street between Vera Avenue on Sunday, Aug. 24, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m.

They’re scheduled to discuss this item consisting of a special permit application to the city at tonight’s Ripon City Council meeting.

The open session begins at 7 p.m. inside the Council Chambers, 259 N. Wilma Ave.

According to the application, the block party will feature games, carnival rides, live music, free food and an antique / muscle car show.

Any street closure for a special event requires approval from Council.

A Special Events Committee has already met with church officials on the application.

Calvary Reformed Church is at 741 Second St.

More information on the meeting is available by logging on to www.cityofripon.org.
