From Coeur d'Alene Press story on tonight's meeting between the Coeur d'Alene School Board and the city of Coeur d'Alene re: Person Field sale:
The school board this week rejected the city's offer for the school district's parcel of Person Field, and countered with a deal that offers to sell Bryan Field to the city along with Person Field as well as pay for more school resource officers in exhange for more cash from the city — $883,537. That figure includes the fully appraised value for Person Field — a value the city disputes. And Bryan Field, city officials said Wednesday, is public space the school uses, so the city has no intention of buying it. It said it's turning down the offer down/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press. Full story here.
Revised Question: Should the Bryan Playground be used as a bargaining chip in the negotiations for Person Field?
