Zack Matheny writes fellow council members and the City Manager about War Memorial stadium:
I respectfully request we consider delaying item #24 until we have had a briefing on this project. This is a significant project and warrants a full discussion of Council. There will be plenty of public input and there are many questions that surround what the City intends to use the Stadium for in the future.
I think it makes sense to remove this item until we have had a full briefing or open small group meetings to discuss.
He tells me, "We have not discussed this issue in years and this is an emotional, financial, preservational, and overall community decision and requires open and thoughtful discussion, not just sticking it on the agenda."
