  1. I attended the Oliver wood's open house and asked the question as to when a business plan would be available to the public. I was told on Wednesday Feb 22 it would be on the city's Web site. I am particularly interested in the interest rate was used for the proforma to establish the amount payable annually for the 20 year capital total payback period.
