Gearhart: ‘If we don’t follow some
sort of plan, then we don’t have a plan’
Continued from Page A1
“We are following a pro-
cess, and we are trying to
get to a conclusion,” Mayor
Matt Brown responded. “If
we continue to willy-nilly
throw things out ‘what if,’
we’re never going to get to
the end of the process.”
“Excuse me, Matt. This
isn’t willy-nilly,” Smith
said. “I’m asking for a sec-
ond geo report. I’m not
stopping the ﬁ rst one.”
“We’re doing due dili-
gence on the public’s No.

tee come up with a vertical
“But have they even
thought of putting the ﬁ re
station here with a vertical
evacuation tower on it?”

been following this process
that we’re trying to get to?”

wrong thing to say,” Smith

“It would be nice if we
could get everything on
the ballot and then you as
councilors could engage
in the advocacy to make
sure people have a proper
understanding of the pros
and cons and beneﬁ ts and
burden,” Watts said.
Ultimately, the momen-
tum of the project, stressed
again by Brown and Watts,
led councilors to vote for
Councilor Reita Fack-
erell was the lone “no”
vote, citing the uncertainty
of the bond process needed
to fund the station.
Discussions for pur-
chase of the High Point site
are underway and could be
presented at an executive
session by the end of this
month, City Administrator
Chad Sweet said.
“None of this stuff in

Brown said. “But if we
