This is looking more and more like an excuse to pump some additional trust fund money into city coffers over the long term. Right now about $250,000 a year from the fund goes into the city general fund. A 2013 Trust Fund ballot proposal would have asked voters to cap the $13 million trust fund at $12.5 million and set aside $500,000, plus five years of royalty payments, toward city parks. Interest generated beyond the cap would likely end up in the general fund.
This should be an effort fueled by a great idea, not looking for one.
