Ticket sales for the annual Trenton City Awards Ceremony have slumped this year, according to Scott Barr of the Trenton Civic Commission.
"Normally, by now, we have over 100 tickets sold," Barr said.
Barr said he has no idea why the civic commission has sold well under the typical amount of tickets and hopes sales will increase "the closer we get to the event."
The City Awards are set for 6:30 p.m. Jan. 19 at the Trenton Village Theatre. Trenton officials and business owners will present several awards to extraordinary public employees and residents nominated by fellow residents.
Trenton-Grosse Ile Patch editor Nate Stemen will present the first Patch Community Service Person of the Year Award.
Barr said, this year, he received more nominations than ever before after partnering up with Patch. There were dozens of nominations for 14 different city awards including police officer and firefighter of the year, Trentonite of the year and good neighbor of the year--to name a few.
Tickets prices are down this year. Barr said ticket prices dropped from $30 to $15. Tickets include a light dessert, coffee and punch following the awards ceremony.
Barr encouraged residents and city officials to pick up their tickets at the Trenton Parks and Recreation Department now, instead of buying them at the door.
