Hot dogs up in the air


The fate of the site leased by a popular hot dog vendor evidently proved to hot to handle for the Finance Committee.

Meeting in a special session this month, the panel rejected a pair of proposals for the city to purchase the dirt strip across from Lake Williams.

Mayor Nancy Stevens wants to spruce up the property, which is at a gateway into the city.

By 3-2 votes, the finance panel rejected Ward 5 Councilor Maura Navin Webster's proposal to allow the mayor to spend up to $99,000 and one by at-large Councilor Steven Levy that set the cap at $86,500.

The panel ended up sending the matter to the full City Council without making a recommendation. No word on when action will be taken.
