Curbing the DDA

 

continued

Whoever succeeds him as mayor, Hieftje believes "the DDA will still be here and will continue to improve the downtown." Board chair Smith hedges her bets. In future years, she says, "I hope the DDA is still going strong."

Susan Pollay also sees the DDA weathering council's moves to curb it, and has no plans to leave. Despite the difficulties, she says, "I have the best job in the world. Look at all the good we do."
