These must be available for all and not just revenue profits. <br />If your real concern is the, present operation of these entities, we once had 'a committee of citizens who <br />analyzed, Edina (at no cost). They had some good ideas.-.,... <br />Please don't'destroy.the quality of life we have in Edina. Get a citizen group and see what they <br />determine. <br />Bob Kojetin <br />Kay Bach <br />Jim VanValkenburg <br />
