Park Theater vote/direction this Tuesday
Original post made by CouncilWatcher on Sep 29, 2007
a) a $500,000 loan, or b) the city purchase of the Park Theater for him, granting him a 25 year leaseback.
The staff report and request from Duncan are both online on the city website.
No mention is any due diligence by the city of Duncan's experience with such projects, nor financial status.
Nor is there mention of a cap for returning to the city for further grants.
Now is the time to get messages on the council email.

I still can't believe that this is still being considered. Consideration of this "proposal" is using city resources including those of the city attorney and city manager ($240k/year).
Since these things are on PDFs, I am showing you the direct links for your convenience.
Please stop this madness!

Can this really be happening with my money?
If is does, I will use this template to create 100 new business ideas to fill the boxes full with requests for free money.
Someone please make this kind of thing go away!
