SPOONER– Spooner Mayor Gary Cuskey calmly controlled the jam-packed meeting of the Spooner City Council on July 5, as a debate over which party should be allowed to purchase the dorms across from the Spooner Civic Center took place.
Both civic center owner Dennis Canfield and Sue Churchill, owner of The Dock Coffee, made their cases, and several members of the public spoke up as well on both sides of the issue. The crowd filled the meeting room and overflowed into the hallway of City Hall.
A motion to reconsider was made, allowing the City Council to consider the matter further, making a decision at a later date.
