Sims Wrong Again, City Owns Library

Item: Book it: City owns library: Assessor's office listed facility as belonging to LCDC/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: The city of Coeur d'Alene owns its public library. Lake City Development Corp., the city's urban renewal agency, does not. But in declaring the local ownership dispute null and void, city officials concede that LCDC does own the adjacent parking lot and that the Kootenai County Assessor's Office, which had incorrectly listed LCDC as the library's owner in the county assessor's database, changed its listing last week to reflect as much after city critics said the listing proved that LCDC owned the $6 million, voter-approved library.

DFO: State Rep. Kathy Sims was wrong when she said Mayor Sandi Bloem, City Council members, and others had a conflict of interest in dealing with McEuen Field upgrades. She and her allies were wrong now in publicly insisting that boogeyman LCDC owns the city library. Do you expect an ap-hollow-gy this time?
