Citizens of Greed made to pay for upgrades to businesses

"[Greer] CPW will replace an old, often-repaired 1.5-inch water line with an 8-inch water line behind buildings in the 200 block of Trade, add a fire hydrant and run a new 8-inch line along an alley parallel to Randall Street over to School Street at a cost of $41,000."

For a CPW that charges $600 to replace sewage taps the $40,000 sounds low.(This is only the first of many charges to make someone else’s Trade St. property more valuable)

The Administration of the City of Greed has been pushing the development for a 'trendy' development of Trade St. The Citizens of Greed were not told that it would be their money used to make the property more valuable.

The excessive number of restaurants on Trade have pushed the limits of the infrastructure past what it can handle (especially considering the fire-trap nature of 100 year old buildings with 'boom town’ roofs made of pine wood and tar). The next changes the City (through CPW) makes will be to improve sewer and power to the 'favored restaurants' and condos.

I suggest the Citizens of Greed look at who owns the buildings, which real estate company is selling them, and who will benefit most from the City or Greed dipping into your pockets.

The City Administrator is paying for a “Planning“ project (with tax payer money) so that they will have someone to blame on for the continued purchase of property for parking and the continued development of Trade Street Slums should the citizenry ever wake up.

I suggest turning the lawn of the New City Hall into a parking lot and selling some of the high priced speculative property the city has bought from ‘connected’ individuals.JackDaniel_
