Forest Park Lease Review Committee To Meet Wednesday & Friday

Did anyone else catch this in the Board of Aldermen calendar?

Title: Forest Park Lease Review Committee
Meeting Type: Committee Meeting
Sponsor: Board Alderman
Time: 1:00pm – 2:00pm
Location :Room 234
Message: To be announced.

Room 234 is not a readily accessible conference room. Known as the Congressional room, it is accessed through the Citizen’s Service Bureau offices numbered 234 and located in the NW corner of the 2nd floor of City Hall. The same committee also looks to be scheduled for Friday at 11am, same location.

This is presumably the four aldermen selected by Mayor Slay to review the terms of the deal to lease 12 acres of Forest Park to BJC for the next 90 years. From MayorSlay.com:

As the general plan now heads to the Board of Aldermen for its consideration, I have asked four senior aldermen – Lyda Krewson; Freeman Bosley, Sr.; Fred Wessels; and Steve Conway – to look over the financial details and report back to me. If they believe the City should get more money, we will ask for more.

So if you are interested in the BJC/Forest Park issue I suggest you make a showing at these meetings.

– Steve

    It sounds like they were trying to keep this hush-hush. Guess we all know now. See ya there!

  2. publiceye says:

    Actually, since it was posted on the weekly agenda, it sounds like “they” are considering it a public meeting, rather than a private discussion.

    [REPLY – Yes, it was posted. But posting and keeping it “hush-hush” are different than announcing say, on MayorSlay.com that discussions will be happening if you are interested in listening here is where you go. – SLP]

    “You did see the notice, didn’t you?” “Oh, yes. it was at the bottom of a locked filing cabinet, in a disused lavatory, with a sign outside the door saying ‘Beware of the Leopard'”. Courtesy of Douglas Adams’ “Hitchhikers Guide to the Galaxy”. Don’t Panic!
