Bad boiler could spoil Phillips Pool and Gym in low-income part of Minneapolis

Neighborhood advocate says they're being red-lined

"Where is the money going and who is being served? That's the information I've been trying to get for years," says Ward Six Councilmember Robert Lilligren, who represents Phillips.

It doesn't really matter who is in charge, says Albee, as long as he knows who to complain to. And, at least recently, his complaints have been heard: The park board has asked the city for money to keep the Phillips Gym and Pool open.

"If we have what we consider to be deliberate or coincidental or accidental or consequential red-lining of our community," Albee says, "we want to kick some butts."
