Business brilliance at City Hall

Dear Aspen City Council,

Your subsidized-housing plan sounds peachy. We bought our free market house in 2001. Please buy it from us at today’s market, then sell it back to us at a deeply discounted price, the difference paid from the real estate transfer tax. That works. You are geniuses.
