SOSMN to City of Mpls: If Granting MOA a One-Year Exemption, Attach Certain Conditions

On March 24, Save Our Symphony MN wrote a fifth letter to Minneapolis Community Planning & Economic Development (CPED) Interim Executive Director Chuck Lutz, copying Mayor Betsy Hodges and City Attorney Susan Segal. Our letter follows the announcement of MOA President/CEO Michael Henson’s August 31 departure and argues that his departure does not cure the defaults described in our previous correspondence.

However, recognizing that the City might want to give new MOA management an opportunity to demonstrate that it can comply with the terms of the Lease going forward and thus grant an exemption until the next annual report (due December 31), we recommend that such an exemption be granted only on certain conditions, including changes in MOA governance to provide for public participation as well as public disclosure of financial information and Board minutes.
