Deputy City Manager Jason Hilgers says this comprehensive discussion and implementation of a solution has to happen sooner rather than later.

Hilgers says this proposed solution is temporary, lasting only 5 years, and is meant to give the City a better understanding of what would work best for the district.

The board will discuss the proposal further during their May 16th meeting.
