STILLWATER, Minn. - The Stillwater City Council voted 4-1 Thursday to approve new plans for the city's annual summer celebration. It will be called "Logjam Days." 

Organizers say it'll "hopefully" be held on the third weekend of July and it will replace "Lumberjack Days." 

Four groups gave presentations to the Council earlier this week. The groups were Filo Productions of St. Paul, Genius of Fun Events of St. Croix Falls, Wis., and Minneapolis; Mid-America Festivals Corp. of Shakopee; and The Locals of Stillwater. 

The Council approved The Locals of Stillwater. The final contract with the group still needs to be drawn up and approved by the council. The last Lumberjack Days were held in July 2011. Organizer Dave Eckberg has been charged with 10 felony counts in connection with unpaid bills.
