Why is the city giving almost a quarter million dollars to an old rundown dealership to help in its rebuilding? What about other business people that LIVE here that get nothing? Maybe because of the under the table dealings for the Hummers? Perhaps for the lady that works there that brokered the deal. You will soon see bulldozers there tearing it down, then you can ask WHY did this happen.

Typical Somerset I would not be surprised. If it has to deal with Hummers it would be a GM dealer I would think, unless bought at a state auction or something.

The Hummers were military surplus given to the Burnside Police Department. They decided they didn't want them and they were given to Somerset Police Department. The deal with the Hummers was explains in the CJ when it happened. They were not bought.

Maybe the city is going to use the building for their new EMS center? A dealership building would already have a large garage bay for the trucks. Makes sense which is why it probably is just a rumor.

Sounds reasonable. Which building is it? Seems like most of the dealerships are exactly that--car dealerships. Maybe they mean one of the old houseboat buildings. Would they explain???

Where is the building that they refer to?? We have lots of empty buildings in Somerset. Too many!! If any body is going to use one--more power to them!!

I heard on TOPIX:) that a bar was going to be located on Vortex Corner. That was a car dealership in the bygone days. Many people could probably remember that. Is that he renovations talked about?? Parking might be a problem.

What car dealer was located there? Maybe Studebaker?
Wilson's Chrysler was located close by but was not on the Vortex Corner. Bar will be across the street.

i think original poster is talking about the don franklin dealership. they are building a new dealership office to replace the two thats there. dont think its funded by anything, but the franklin family. they own around 15 dealerships in kentucky, pretty sure they dont need tax dollars, but who knows....

I still think it's strange that the original poster came up with this idea then never revisited the thread. I can't figure out what the intent was.
