Council Minutes: Legion Not Happy

From City Clerk Renata McLeod's draft minutes of the Coeur d'Alene City Council meeting Tuesday:

Monte Larson, 930 N. 5th Street, stated that the Coeur d’Alene American Legion Baseball Memorandum of Understanding states that replacement of the field will include equal or better facilities, restroom facilities, and that details for the design such as size, dimension, location, etc. would be agreed upon between the parties.  He expressed concern that the Ramsey Park facility construction began and the dug outs are not sunk into the ground as was agreed upon previously.  He stated that a recent meeting at Miller Stauffer’s office was held and they reviewed the plans for facilities that have not yet been constructed.  He stated that he felt that the fencing was adequate; however, the bathroom facilities (CXT) on other side of trail had no running water and did not have multiple stations, like the McEuen facility.

Question: Is the American Legion being too finicky re: the new ballfield constructed for them by the city in exchange for leaving McEuen Field?
