The City of Wilmington has sent a bill to the organizers of the Foxtail festival to pay for security at the event held in mid September.

Mayor Dennis Williams tells Delaware's Morning News the bill is for less than the $18,000 figure mentioned during a City Council hearing following the event.

"Well, we've already sent a bill out, it wasn't $18,000. The first agreement that came with the police and the folks who represented Foxtail came to a total of $7,000. It's already been sent out to What Scene? LLC. We sent this bill out on the 14th," says Williams.

Williams says he has also told the city's deputy director of Parks and Recreation Shawn Allen to fold his non-profit, Youth Empowered to Strive and Succeed. It was revealed recently that Allen secured a one-day liquor license for State Rep. Charles Potter, whose son put together Foxtail. City code prohibits any Wilmington official from representing a private individual in a matter before the city.

Williams says Allen will not lose his city job.
