The City of Flagstaff has decided to renew a contract to sell wastewater to Arizona Snowbowl for snowmaking. The decision was made by city staff, not by City Council.
The decision comes as a new study questions the economic impact of the ski resort.
The report commissioned by the Hopi Tribe disputes previous economic studies that found a $17 million annual economic impact.
John Duffield, an economics professor at the University of Montana, says previous studies overstated the impact.
