Hamilton: Willing To Work With City

Chairman Tom Hamilton of the Coeur d'Alene School Board: I attended the council meeting tonight together with Trustee Seddon and Superintendent Bauman. In addressing the council, we made it clear that the district and the Board truly desire to keep Person Field as a green space / park for the local community but that the District should not be the steward of that park space any longer. I am happy to report that the council agreed and have directed city leadership to work with the district to find a way to transfer ownership of the parcel to the City where it rightfully should be. Mike’s statement that an exchange of property is the statutory requirement for a public entity to acquire property from another public entity is correct. The solution here is simple and I remain hopeful that this can come to fruition quickly. Tom Hamilton's full comment.

Question: Sounds like a good copromise to me. How about you?
