A $100 per housing unit in Bellerose would only generate around $40. I couldnt tell ya how much it would cost to widen a bay or renovate, but I got a good feeling it will cost more than that.

How much would widening the bay cost and wouldn't a $100 per household tax cover it? If this were a firehouse in Missouri we'd all be railing about what a waste of taxpayer money this is.

I see, there are about 400 houses in Bellerose Village, at $100 a pop that's $40,000. So we are looking at about $250 a house?

Did he actually sell it? I still see for sale signs and notice they are parking cars in the lot.
The original owner was this classic crusty guy straight out of central casting. He would never let girls work there supposedly because of his belief that they would eat too much ice cream. I always joked that there was a woman on the Supreme Court before a girl worked at Frozen Cup.
Here's the story - the Developer DID buy the property. The signs have never been removed.
The cars that have been (illegally) parked there belong to the Used Car Dealership next door. They've been asked to remove the cars several times.
That's an interesting piece of trivia about the original owner. I did not know that. WoW
