Planning Commission holds hearing on proposed ice rink

Gary Bess, St. Louis County Director of Parks, delivers remarks as Justin Carney, St. Louis County Director of Planning listens, during an informational hearing by the St. Louis County Planning on a four-rink ice complex proposed for a portion of Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park in Maryland Heights at County Council chambers in Clayton Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2017.

We now know that Sheila Sweeney, CEO of the St. Louis Economic Development Partnership, and Gary Bess, the county’s parks director, misled the public concerning the proposed ice complex in Creve Coeur Lake Memorial Park (Tony Messenger's column "County’s rink complex on thin ice," Sept. 1). They both knew that the grading work at the site was for the ice complex, yet responded to questions stating the work was for drainage. They both knew this was false.

Therefore, both should resign, and should they refuse, be removed and required to forfeit all earned retirement benefits.
