General Manager Gordon Kaye says he plans to step down soon.  RAVE city council liaison, Alderman Frank Beach, says the board is in charge of finding Kaye's replacement.

"The board under the leadership of attorney Craig Thomas, chairman, and the board are discussing that right now of what to do, where to go, who might come, what candidates there are and all of those kind of things." -says Beach.
