AS EXPECTED, NEXT YEAR’S BUDGET TOOK UP THE LION’S SHARE OF LAST(MON) NITE’S BURLINGTON CITY COUNCIL MEETING.

 

BUT BEFORE THEY GOT TO THAT, MEMBERS HEARD FROM CHARLEY WALSH OF THE RIVERFRONT ADVISORY COMMITTEE, WHICH HAS DECIDED TO RECOMMEND A SLIGHTLY DIFFERENT APPROACH IN ITS PROPOSED TALKS WITH BURLINGTON-NORTHERN/SANTA FE ABOUT TURNING MORE OF THE RIVERFRONT SOUTH OF THE AUDITORIUM INTO PARK SPACE.  GREATER BURLINGTON PARTNERSHIP DIRECTOR JASON HUTCHESON NOW SEEMS SATISFIED THAT THE COMMITTEE UNDERSTANDS THE DUAL INTERESTS INVOLVED.

BOB FLEMING WILL REPRESENT THE COUNCIL IN TALKS WITH THE RAILROAD AND CITY MANAGER JIM FERNEAU REMINDED EVERYONE THAT THE CITY HAS NO MONEY TO CONTRIBUTE TO THE PROPOSED, 10-ACRE REDEVELOPMENT.
