– Bottom line:
The blame game is not relevant here, what IS important is council meeting tonight to rectifying this!
This blogger suggests the public deserves to be publicly addressed on these points:
1. The council made a decision on May 22nd to purchase property without knowing the previous sales price,
2. Therefore, council was unable to compare in making a responsible offer and had not inquired further,
3. The council may wish to consider hiring a licensed, professional advisor to act in the public’s interests by properly representing the elected officials reconsidering approval of these taxpayer dollar expenditures, and in the future for any real estate.
