Mayor Butler says shovels should be in the ground by summer on the Mercy Heights project, a $70M addition to downtown. The Mayor met with officials of COR Development today. Glad to hear it is moving ahead.
The HOTLINE was hot today as we continue to try and comply with the boss's edict to make it more edgy. We had a great discussion of the Trump rallies and chatted about the drum beat of stories about VD and bedbugs.
Good news today. I got my final bill for snow plowing this season and I can't remember spending so little. That's a real break on the budget, although some cooler problems have eaten it up....It has to go somewhere. Lower energy costs this year have helped as well.
I'll be interested in the disposition on the pool issue tonight. A new pool would add about 2% to the tax levy for twenty years, but if it's really something people want, I don't mind paying for it. I just haven't heard much clamoring for it to reopen and I hope if they do it, a new bathhouse and rest rooms for the Park are included.
