Crews removing shrubs from in front of Mesa Public Library Thursday was unexpected for some following County Council’s agreement Tuesday to consider a petition asking to let voters decide in November if that location is appropriate for a skate park.
The petitioners suggested voters be asked if the county should build a $500,000 skate board park in front of Mesa Public Library – yes or no, and said they would accept the majority’s decision.
Mike Wismer presented the request to council on behalf of the petitioners Tuesday evening.
“My goal was to offer an alternative for the county because this location has become so divisive and the alternative would allow the voters at large to voice their opinion,” said Wismer during an interview Thursday afternoon. “I had hoped that since council had agreed to put the question on an upcoming agenda that they would have held off starting site work until after that meeting. Starting work (Thursday) morning seems disingenuous.”
Council Chairman Jim Hall said Thursday that based on his understanding that there won’t be much expense in the next couple of weeks, he gave County Administrator Max Baker the OK to begin site preparation.
