Council: Still No To McEuen Vote

Item: McEuen vote supporters try again/Tom Hasslinger, Coeur d'Alene Press

More Info: A week after a subcommittee killed the request of a public vote regarding the McEuen Field redesign project from reaching the Coeur d’Alene City Council’s desk, around 100 vote supporters attended the council’s Tuesday meeting to ask that the topic come forward anyway. It didn’t. “You heard tonight a lot of questions, and that’s where we’re at, too,” Mayor Sandi Bloem told The Press after the council listened to an hour-plus of public testimony, but didn’t motion for the topic to be added to a future council agenda item. A final design, cost estimates, and funding sources all need to be figured out before the council could make any decisions on the plan.

Question: Do you expect to see a ticket of candidates running on the McEuen Field issue this fall in the Coeur d'Alene City Council elections? Would you support such a ticket?
