Edinger, Adams Oppose McEuen Pact

The fine print behind financing McEuen Field is set to go to the Coeur d'Alene City Council. Not that moving forward on the contract between the city and its urban renewal agency was recommended by the General Services Committee Monday - it wasn't - but the agreement that spells out the financial details on the downtown park reconstruction project will go before the City Council next week anyway. And if it's like everything else with McEuen Field, it will eke by, four votes to three. “Their concern is they want to make sure the work gets done and done in an acceptable manner if they're putting the money out,” City Attorney Mike Gridley said on the reasons for a formal written agreement with Lake City Development Corp., the city's urban renewal agency. “They're putting out a lot of money and they just want to make sure it goes for the project they're funding.” LCDC has agreed to pay up to $11.5 million on the city's $14.2 million proposed park overhaul project/Tom Hasslinger,  Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Are you surprised that Edinger and Adams appear to be no more than speed bumps as the city continues to work to improve McEuen Field?
