Why dodge city voters?

FishPass and city park disposal have many unanswered, sensible questions. Why didn’t the city follow the charter that required 3/5 votes to “sell, swap, lease, or in any way foreign or alienate this park”.

Remember, the city has no idea how this experimental FishPass actually works, no idea how much it will cost to operate, no idea how much it will cost to maintain, and no idea what the cost if this is extreme experimental project fails.

City taxpayers, not only do we lose a park, but we become financially responsible and caretaker for an experimental project that has no proven success. It’s an experiment. If this project is so beneficial to our city and taxpayers, why is the city determined not to allow a vote?

Let the city’s taxpayers vote.
