The COE has requested that step, she said, so the agency will have a n o p p o r t u n i t y t o make any modifications the consultant rec- ommends before the COE begins holding public meetings on the data. City Manager Tom Barwin wants to make cer- tain the findings have been double-checked, DavisShaw continued.
