Bangor City Council to Discuss New Arena 

The Bangor city council is holding a special meeting Monday night.They want to schedule dates to hold public hearings on two pressing issues, a new arena and combining dispatch services. Councilors voted to spend nearly 800-thousand dollars to get final site plans for the proposed arena, which is projected to cost about 65-million dollars.But a group of local citizens say they want the public to have the final say. Long time basketball coach Bob Cimbollek is leading the effort. Last month, the city approved a petition by the group to get the referendum on the ballot.
