LETTER TO THE EDITOR | Parks board was right to lift ban

  • Mar 17, 2014 at 8:00AM

Editor, Contrary to The Record’s March 8 editorial, the park board’s decision to lift its ban on Terry Swanson was not based on favoritism or a “free pass” to disobey rules.

We’ll build it with $10 million bonds, guaranteed by the county, using the fairground property as collateral. We’ll keep personnel costs down to $700,000 per year.
