Aldermen Johnson, Beach and Jacobson will meet with Mayor Morrissey.
They'll be the
first to review a document laying out the transferring of the Coronado's management from the city to RAVE.
"Will there be
more efficiency? Will there be a reduction in subsidy and will they be able to
book more shows because of the experience they have and national connections?"
said 10th Ward Alderman Frank Beach.
Some city leaders
asking if the way it's being run now isn't broken why fix it. "When the Coronado was renovated it was understood by all the
investors, which meant a lot of the city of Rockford, that it would be our community arts performing arts center
and I think that's still true today," said 3rd Ward Alderman
The future of those
who work at the Coronado
is also being questioned. City leaders faced with what will happen to Coronado employees if RAVE
takes over. "As I understand it everyone that's working now will be
offered a job to continue working that's not going to be a problem," said Alderman Beach.
outlining how the Coronado
will function and operate under RAVE's management will be brought forth during
next week's city council meeting. City leaders are hoping to have a final
decision by the end of the month.
