Dawson reviewed a proposed compromise agreement he had worked out with Detjen and the Supple brothers, purchasers of the property. There was discussion of the proposal.

DeVries thanked those involved in the compromise and urged that negotiations continue to explore more options and attempt to keep all the parking in City ownership. He also stated that we should work with the City and the purchaser of City Hall to try to find a "win-win-win" scenario. Bubolz spoke of the need for clear communications among City staff, Library staff and Board members.
