Ken Jakes makes freedom of info request re: Gaylord-Dollywood snow-splash park

Ken Jakes, frequent Metro critic and citizen activist knownfor exposing government waste and corruption, has made a freedom of information request of Mayor Karl Dean asking for, "all emails, letters, notes, or any other documents regarding the Winter Park by Gaylord and Dollywood from you, your office, Finance Department, Council Office, or any other department of the Metropolitan Government of Nashville and Davidson County."

Ken has argued against the city's proposed incentive package saying, "our elected officials are set on giving our city away.  If this project is going to produce revenues of 60 million a year as claimed", says Ken, "you can bet they will come anyway. Every dollar our city gives in tax break cuts, you and I the remaining tax payer gets to carry the burden."
