Now they want the City to put more money in than they are, but the waterfall stays the same. That's not fair to our citizens.</p><p style="color:#212121;margin-bottom:0px;font-family:calibri, helvetica, sans-serif, serif, emojifont;font-size:16px;background-color:#ffffff;">This information was not provided at all of the meetings that were conducted by the city, and I believe this is critical to providing a full picture of the current proposal.</p><p style="color:#212121;margin-bottom:0px;font-family:calibri, helvetica, sans-serif, serif, emojifont;font-size:16px;background-color:#ffffff;">There are two things that would make this deal more fair: either lower the public investment or change the waterfall to reflect our greater contribution." <br></p></div>1/21/2019 4:25:00 PMMatthew Heil602-534-0108
