The biggest write-off in the city is the old Demoulas/Market Basket on Water Street. They tore up the floor so it cannot be taxed as an enclosed building but only as a vacant lot.If we are serious about fixing Fitchburg then elect me. I am not scared nor intimidated by outside influences.
Businesses have been leaving Fitchburg at a steady rate since 2009. This isn't a new situation. Why now is the council so mindful of this dire situation? It is election time again!!!
But they still write it off as a vacant building for 2-3 times as much as they would have gotten in rent.
It is worth more vacant then occupied and developed.
Take a business course. This is why you can never be a Councilor or a Mayor.
