The McEuen Park Plan was blessed, cussed, dissected and otherwise commented upon in a continuous and lengthy packed hearing before the Coeur d’Alene City Council on May 24th. Many attending held signs and testified demanding a public vote upon the plan. As a matter of law in Idaho, the city council could not order a public vote. There is no provision in the Coeur d’Alene city ordinances nor in Idaho Code Title 34 “Elections” nor in Title 50, Chapter 4 “Municipal Elections” for a public vote/attorney Scott Reed, Coeur d'Alene Press online.

Question: What do you think of attorney Scott Reed's contention that a public vote on McEuen Field would be illegal (if the City Council had bent to pressure at a recent hearing to call for one)?
