The Evel Knievel Days organizing committee says it is stepping down.
In a letter written to Chief Executive Matt Vincent, dated Wednesday, committee executive director, Chad Harrington stated the committee will be taking a step back from the event and will allow the county to move forward as it sees fit.
Vincent also addressed the issue at Wednesday night's county commissioners meeting.
Vincent stated the county became involved solely to enter a tentative agreement with the committee, for a higher level of accountability.
It's the same agreement the county has with the other festivals.
Since the committee will go another direction, it leaves questions as to what will happen next.
"There's a lot of things that are a part of this festival economy that Butte-Silver Bow has been an integral part of," said Chief Executive Matt Vincent. "It's already in place. It's just a matter of pulling everything together and moving ahead."
Earlier this week Kelly Knievel, Evel's son and owner of the naming rights, has stated that he plans to organize a new volunteer committee that will work closely with the county and enter the agreement.
