Why cannot a city live within its funds without always wanting the most modern or up to date items when the taxpayer is having a hard time maintaining the basics?

You have to be realistic Ragnar. This newspaper NEVER reveals the deals involving the publisher's friends, or the publisher himself.

Claytor is primarily a residential neighborhood and that area is not designed for high volume commercial traffic.

There is nothing wrong with the current Operations Center.

Unless the city can make a huge profit AND cover the complete cost of a new Ops Center from the sale price, why do it?

Do you know why? Because a few well-connected citizens stand to gain, financially.

Look at most of the real estate transactions involving government money over the past decade. Certain citizens, elected officials and/or their partnerships or cronies profited at taxpayer expense.

Instead of taking their word for it, maybe the NR should start digging into this and ask why the city would give up a perfectly good Op Center for no reason. Where is the demand?
