a resolution is only as good as the people who put it into action, which means the council has to approve it, we wonder why there will not be any action taken against the ones responsible for this loan mess and the delinquency in it's payment, as of now it's all talk, what's needed is action not tongue wagging

the mayor at the time is now on their payroll at the Clarion! Is this just a coincidence? I don't think so. It is time we started making our government take action when a wrong has been done. Too many times things get swept under the carpet!

I think this cmmunity deserves some answers from HUD concerning the inappropriate use of CDBG funds. Will there be restitution for the $500,000 spent on ineligible property? How about the $41,000 spent on ineligible equipment, $15,000 on unauthorized travel expense, and $6,600 on bonus payments to the DLDC cairmnan and treasurer? It's been nine months since the comptroller issued his report. Isn't it time we get some answers from HUD?

A personal guarantee from the owners. What does that mean? The Clarion is a private for profit entity. What is the city doing getting involved? If the Clarion cannot make it on its own so what. Close it down. Remember Solindra? Once again our "leaders" are blinded by money and the who comes out the loser? Yup you got it.

The proposal does not make sense, nor does the city attorney’s explanation.

“Accurate repayment structure”???? An accurate repayment structure is normal in the real world.

More grant funds? Another attorney? Another resolution.

Big waste of taxpayer dollars!
