In her draft minutes of the Coeur d'Alene City Council meeting Tuesday, Assistant City Clerk Renata McLeod reports:
“Tina Johnson, 601 E. Front Avenue: Was concerned about a quote from a Councilmember that the money is going toward a park when it could go toward creating jobs. Ms. Johnson contacted the contractor and found that they have approximately 125 people involved in project, providing continued and new employment opportunities. Additionally, local supplies are being purchased for this project. She thanked Councilman McEvers, Councilman Kennedy, and the Mayor for owning and employing local workers. Councilman Goodlander stated that she would have loved to be at groundbreaking but had a family commitment to attend that day.”
Question: Anyone check out work at McEuen Field lately?
