Reed: Law Prohibits McEuen Vote

In a 9-page report presented to the General Services Committee Tuesday, attorney Scott Reed argues that state law prohibits the City Council for asking for a public vote on proposed McEuen Field changes. Writes Reed: "The McEuen Park Plan is an administrative action, not legislative, and cannot be under any circumstance or future revision be subject of a city election for a public vote." You can read Scott's entire opinion here. After a public discussion on the matter Tuesday, Councilman Ron Edinger made a motion to hold a public vote on McEuen Field changes. The motion died for a lack of a second from Councilmen John Bruning and Mike Kennedy, who chaired the meeting.

Question: Do you agree with Scott Reed's opinion?
