Cherry Blossom Festival president ousted

After nearly four years, Jake Ferro, CEO and president for the Cherry Blossom Festival, has been asked to resign.

That's according to a press release from M and R Marketing group. Right now, there's no word yet on why. 

According to the news release, festival chair Stacy Ingram says the board wishes him the best in his future endeavors.

Last month, we told you about Macon-Bibb Mayor, Robert Reichert, expressing concern over the timetable for Central City Park renovations.

Ferro said then they asked the county to stop construction for the festival.

County spokesman Chris Floore responded that they would have to pay contractors $60,000 to stop work and that money is not in the budget.

An interim CEO will be announced soon, according to the news release.

We've reached out to Ferro for comment, but have not yet heard back.
