Clairton Grocery Store

Just who is the City of Clairton working with on the Grocery Store ? Something is not right with all these things going on. From what I understand the developer wants more money from the City, over $400,000 ? Are you joking ? Seems to me they are holding the City hostage ! We had another store that wanted to come in and wanted NO MONEY from the City. Bottom Dollar would have already been on its way to being built but the developer from the Sav a Lot apparantly lied amd said they were ready to dig ! Well here we are with nothing and a company wanting to hold a store over the PEOPLES HEAD of this City for more money. I say lets get the old one back that wanted nothing but to provide us with a quality grocery store. Blame the leaders in charge of this mess and investigate ! This is corruption at its worst ! Pockets are being lined here people WAKE UP !

If Bottom Dollar wanted to come for nothing, they may have presented a problem to the local politicians. You can't ask for a kickback when nothing was given to begin with.

My guess is Bottom Dollar is a reputable company and chooses not to do business with the schmucks in Clairton city hall.

I heard another reason Bottom Dollar backed out was because Ralph Imbrogno wanted all the painting business.

I guarantee the man they are working with now will be getting a big kickback ! So will a certain Council member. Bottom Dollar pulled out because the City was told everything was taken care of and Savalot was ready to dig. That was a huge lie !! Now this company wants More money from the City. I say screw that ! They lied and cost the City a sure thing. I bet we never get a store now !

Then its turned into a "racial issue" ? What a bunch of crap. Not only that but confidential information was given to citizens that had no business knowing anything ? There is a leak in the council. That tells me there is corruption !

Anyone starting a grocery store in this town had better have: a lot of cash, a lot of lawyers, a lot of expensive insurance, and a lot of security guards. They must be willing to pay off a lot of government departments, pay race-based groups not to sue them or harass them, pay organized crime and gangs for 'protection', pay way more for land and utilities hook ups, pay higher costs associated with unions, and be prepared to be shoplifted and robbed and assaulted and even killed, and not be able to raise prices past Wal-Mart to cover their true costs.

This situation is not just found in Clairton-Wilson but in a thousand dying or dead towns and cities in this nation.
