Send it to committee, that will get rid of it

March 2005
Inside Tucson Business;3/28/2005, Vol. 14 Issue 42, p4
The article reports that the Tucson council members publicly lamented the fact they were more or less blind-sided by the fund-raising and financial woes with the restoration of the Fox Theatre downtown. To its credit, the council probably made the correct decision to permit the sale of $5.6 million in bonds to finish the restoration project this year. All concerned seem to think getting the theatre open is a linchpin in the downtown Rio Nuevo revltalization efforts. But perhaps if the council members had insisted on being more actively involved--and holding bureaucrats responsible-- they might have had a bit more forewarning regarding the situation.
