Update, 6 p.m.: Councilwoman Kathleen Talbot, who is the Common Council's representative on the Paramount search committee, said the group met with one of the prospective theater managers last week and two of them Tuesday night.
Talbot said the three proposals come from entities with ties to the Hudson Valley area and that their proposals are very different in terms of the vision they have for the Paramount.
"Some people will recognize the names, some won't," Talbot said. "It depends on how involved you are in the field."
The committee charged with helping to choose a new management team for the Paramount Theater for the Performing Arts in Peekskill is scheduled to make its recommendations next week.
The committee, which is made up of city officials, business leaders and community members, finished an information gathering session with the interested parties Tuesday night, Bob Knight, a spokesman for the Common Council, said today.
A recommendation for a new management team will be made in executive session during the Feb. 4 Common Council meeting. The names of the three firms that made proposals will be revealed on Feb. 5.
The center has been closed since October, when the original management team closed its doors after failing to reach its fundraising goal for the year.
