Council to get AG Opinion on Parkway

City Council voted 3-2 last night (Mayor Cox and Councilor Lynch in the minority) to seek the opinion of Attorney General Jerry Kilgore in the debate over the Meadowcreek Parkway. The majority on Council is seeking to dodge a constitutional restriction on the supermajority required to sell parkland by simply giving the land to the state for the next few decades. The minority believes that this is a questionably-legal dodge of the state constitution, and they enjoy the backing of the primary author of the state constitution, Dick Howard. Liz Nelson has the story in today’s Progress.
