Bill Koch is thinking about buying the Wichita Boathouse, said a Koch spokesman Thursday, but it remains an informal idea and he has no plans to make a proposal to the Wichita City Council.
It’s unclear how Koch’s nonproposal fits in with six other ideas already submitted to the Wichita City Council. Of course, if Koch does decide to make a proposal, his history with the Boathouse, to which he donated more than $1 million for renovation, carries some weight.
But Koch doesn’t own the Boathouse, and the City Council shouldn’t feel pressured to give his ideas favored status. Members should choose the Boathouse plan that makes the most sense for the community.
