Crews Remove City Hall Parking Lot

Spokesman Keith Erickson for Lake City Development Corporation reports on latest development in McEuen Field upgrade:

As expected, crews today finished removal of asphalt from the City Hall parking lot and will soon begin hauling in base rock for that lot, as well as the new East Lot under construction adjacent to City Hall. Meantime, Team McEuen engineer Phil Boyd said Friday that when complete, the McEuen Park upgrade will include parking for 45 boat trailers; 23 in the new East Lot, 19 in the parking facility and three handicapped spots near the launch. The project remains on schedule and Boyd does not anticipate looming rain to hamper efforts.

Riverstone Wants $20K For Lot Lease

Riverstone West, LLC is asking Kootenai County to pay more than $20,000 a year to use a parking lot for community busing services, after the company has provided the lot for free for several years. The county can hardly be bitter, said Commissioner Dan Green. “I guess it's always nice getting it for free, we'll be disappointed we have to pay, but it's the gentleman's property,” Green acknowledged. For roughly five years, developer John Stone has allowed vacant lots at the Riverstone development to be used for Citylink buses to pick up and deposit passengers. Riders have also parked their cars there. Those activities have been situated for about four years at a 1.4-acre dirt lot at East Seltice Way and West Riverstone Drive/Alecia Warren, Coeur d'Alene Press. More here.

Question: Seems like a small price to pay for a good service. What do you think?
