Maybe Starr was initially interested in buying this property if the city & county agreed to pay all demolition & reclamation costs, but isn't it funny that soon thereafter, CliffStarr was in secret negotiations to sell? Looks like Stanley was playing the city & county, but it never happened b/c Cott apparently was only interested in CliffStarr, which left the county and city holding the bag. Hopefully this new developer (Atwater Capital) is sincere and doesn't have any tricks of its own.

Doesn't the city or county have any knowledgeable attys who can protect our costs thru a reimbursement clause if/when a potential buyer backs out?

That’s taxpayer money. Where is the “$95,000 for non-operating expenditures” going? Who, exactly, are the checks made out to?

I keep hearing that the former wire mill on Lucas Ave. will be torn down but it still stands as a major eyesore in a dilapetated condition. When is this problem going to be addressed?

Phil: Apparently the city doesn't have the power to issue citations, but then again, I'm sure someone in city hall knows why this is being allowed. Considering the recent public disclosure of the significant tax assessment reduction given to the OBSERVER by the city w/o objection, it's possible that the Steel plant worked out a deal w/the assessor's office long ago not to do the same in return for special treatment regarding this dilapidated bldg.
