UPDATED: $886,780 approved for removal of peat soils from the Downtown Park

City council awarded a bid to Santana Trucking & Excavating, Inc.,in the amount of $886,780.82 for the removal of Downtown Park peat soils. Removal is scheduled for August -- get ready for a mess. 1,000 truckloads will be removed. Another 1000 replaced.

One Friend thought why not build underground parking, rather than fill up the hole? The aquifer?  Another couldn't understand how heavy buildings once stood on this site but park grass can't.  Many want to know where all that peat is going; the city has been silent.  By chance are they sifting it for artifacts?
