Will Main Street changes be enough for city? PDF Print E-mail

Downtown group expands its board but declines to adopt open-meetings law as required by Port aldermen  

    With $80,000 of public money hanging in the balance, Port Main Street Inc. leaders on Monday tried to placate city officials by expanding the board of directors, but failed to add to the bylaws a clause that it will follow the Wisconsin Open Meetings law — a requirement of aldermen who will decide in the coming weeks whether to fund the organization next year.

    The board did, however, informally agree to add a clause that it would abide by the spirit of the law and its requirements of openness and public notice. That proposal was to be reviewed by its bylaws committee Friday.

    The board on Monday also reviewed a proposed $135,000 budget for 2014 that seeks not only the $25,000 city contribution to Main Street but also $55,000 in funding from the Business Improvement District.


    And following a two-hour closed session, the board fired its executive director, Sara Grover, effective Jan. 1, saying the change is needed to bring the program to “a new level of success and long-term sustainability.”
