EDC using underhanded tactics
A source has informed the Crapster that the City, in its attempts to drive down prices (for possible eminent domain purposes) is giving away its land at cheap rates and paying landowners less for their land in order to show a smaller purchase price. Also, after making deals, the city tells the landowners that they won't get the money to relocate their businesses until July 2009 because this wasn't budgeted for before. Having to shoulder the cost up front will put them in financial distress.
- Why did they lie to everyone about it being so cheap to get done when they don't have the money on hand and there's no guarantee that they will?
- Why is the city trying to deflate the purchase prices?
- Why aren't we having a referendum on this (the way that Nevada just did)?
- Why are we trying to take this on when we can't afford school seats and cops?
- Why isn't this illegal?
