They assembled to decide what should be done with the house that the bank currently owns. A few of the ideas floated around were to hold a public auction, open it up for veterans to use, or to host afterschool programs.</p><p>After all the ideas were discussed, each participant was given a ticket to put in a box that belonged to their favorite corresponding idea.</p> Mon, 04 Feb 2013 23:05:02 +0000 Chris McDaniel 8972 at http://news.stlpublicradio.org Former 'Occupier' Wants To Bring Participatory Budgeting To 6th Ward
