Done Deal For Person, Bryan Fields

The city of Coeur d'Alene agreed to purchase Person and Bryan fields from the Coeur d'Alene School District Tuesday night, ending an at times rocky negotiating process that lasted several months between the two entities. The city agreed to pay $750,000 for the roughly 2-acre Bryan Field and the 3.8-acre portion of the 7-acre Person Field owned by the district. The council, however, reiterated some arguments it has voiced throughout the negotiating process before agreeing to the purchase - namely, it felt it was coming up on the short end of the financial deal. “I'm tired of this issue, we have debated it long enough,” City Councilman Mike Kennedy said. “At the end of the day, let's just move forward”/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press.

Question: All's well that ends well?
