Comments on: Pleas for Human, Safety Services at Council it's like being there Tue, 16 Sep 2014 04:56:38 +0000 hourly 1 By: David Lewis David Lewis Wed, 05 May 2010 20:52:32 +0000 Jack:

I think your statement is building on a myth that is not based in fact. I don’t believe the transaction you appear to be referencing ever occurred or at least has yet to occur.

I believe you are referring to a property that was appraised a few years ago but has not closed. In the mean time the value fell (has it has done everywhere) and a new appraisal showed the property was worth less but I don’t think it was $2 million.

Anyway it has not closed.

I guess council is totally happy with the financial mismanagement of this group and their failure to have a proper process in place to prevent overpayment to the tune of $2 Million for property and developement rights? We can talk for hours about sandwich boards but not for more than five minutes about millions in taxpayer funds? So much for our “public-at-large” rep.

No wonder the city is facing financial problems!
