I've been here for 22 years and have never seen ANY type of yacht that traversed its way along the Ohio THAT was a local vessel, yet we have a yacht club?
Today's article in the Herald is about how this yacht club owner has conned the city into paying $5,400 a WEEK, since last May to pump out water out of the sinking barge ( Holderby's Landing). You see, the city owns the failed marina and restaurant now. After wasting over $86,000 of our money, they have decided instead of repairing the leak and upgrading the barge to either make it more attractive to vend to an investor, they will now be yanking out of the water, on our dime as well as paying of the 15 year lease the city has with the owner of the yacht club. Yet another example of inept, lazy, and stupid Huntington cronyism. Are these the things we should be spending our money on? Gee, I cant possibly imagine why out city continues to fail.....
