City Parking Authority needs council appointee, Dowd says: "'This is hundreds of millions of dollars at question here,' Mr. Dowd said, after sending a letter to Mr. Ravenstahl urging that council be brought into the process. 'You can't make that decision without collaboration, consensus, and without a duly constituted board with clear membership.'Dowd has a clear mandate to lead the urban youth / recreation committee. We're holding out hope for collaboration and consensus with how to better play with our kids in our public facilities.
Good to poke the mayor with his duty to keep the authorities at full membership.
Sell off the parking authority assets. Liquidate. Don't lease.
Furthermore, let's have retention votes for every authority member. Then we'll have some accountability.
