Administrator Mentions Hydro Races

In her draft minutes of the City Council meeting Tuesday, City Clerk Renate McLeod reports this note from City Administrator Wendy Gabriels' report:

“City staff recently met with Sheriff Wolfinger to discuss what effects a Labor Day unlimited hydroplane race will have on the City, even though the event will be held out of the city limits.  The City will not be the first responders; however, the event sponsors expect 30,000 to 100,000 visitors to the race that will come to and through Coeur d’Alene.  The Coeur d’Alene Lake Drive acquisition discussion will come forward in March.” Complete council minutes here.

DFO: I keep hearing reports of key individuals quitting the Diamond Cup Hydroplane Board of Directors. Anyone know whether this year's proposed hydroplane races are on solid financial footing?

Question: Would you like to see the city of Coeur d'Alene acquire Coeur d'Alene Lake Drive?
