The city’s building: Ka-ching
I spoke against the building in the Rio Grande Park (Recycle Center) when I went to the public hearing on June 26 because I don’t support a building that costs up to $1 million for a recycle drop-off site. Five other citizens spoke against the project as well (and letters against were also sent in), but the City Council approved it anyway with flying colors.
Now, regarding the new guest pavilion that is to be placed in the mall and the city is spending $650 per square foot?! Give me a break! Steve Bossart of the city’s Asset Management Department says, “I think we got a fair price.”
You’ve got to be kidding!
Just another example of excessive spending by the city!

It’s hard to fight City Hall and even harder to fight well-funded neighbors who don’t want any development near them, a local man has realized. So he settled for less than what he and his partner bought the property for.
