It seem ironic that Atherton, the defender of property rights, would make this decision. Atherton doesn't claim to own the urns. And the Lambs said they spent money to repair them. Who owns them?
The council's decision doesn't square with the law or the town's own staff and consultant's view. Did the council just cave into public pressure from Lindenwood?
