they did that same thing to the old ben franklin in fort plain and look how that turned out.by rejecting the bid you are rejecting this years tax money from the property and every year after that as well.How are you going to get that $70.000 back by giving it to a restoration group that will go non-profit and not pay any taxes.Thats your argument that it is not enough and if they reject the bid they will get anything ever.Another case of who you know and the tax payers not paying attention.

I agree, wow. This is simple shortsightedness that is prevalent in the area. Instead of looking at the money lost, move ahead and see that you will make tax money if someone takes over the property. What money does it take in if no one, or a non-profit owns it? Negative income, that's what, for maintenance and upkeep on a building that is not making the town any money.
