Sold to anyone but the county.
If it was such a great deal the chamber would be keeping it. Instead they have occupied it and not put much maintance into it. Now that it needs repairs and Art has used up all the money that was supposed to be used for that he is trying to dump it back on the county. There are lots of better deals out there that would be more reasonable and suited for the TDC.

1. Art has no say in the matter. He is controlled by his board.

2. Agree on the issue of maintenance by the Chamber and it's b.o.d.

3. Name 1 better deal that is more reasonable, if you can.

The Old Marianna High School would be a fine place for not only the BS Chamber and JCTDC along with alot of the other county offices. First it is paid for and belongs to the county and the next it is being maintained anyway and the parking is already more than ample. But this would make tpoo much sense and won't cater to some of the big shots whims.

The old high school could serve those listed and a few more due to its size. I don't see the county consolidating it's offices though, even if it is practical.

What is going on with the old health department building?

There are lots of empty places around the county that could be leased, rented or purchased. Something that people forget about these old houses is the upkeep and trying to heat/cool them.

What is a monthly average of the utilities at the Russ House?

Hold a public auction with a minimum reserve. Bidders would come from across the nation.

I agree. Tear it down. Go to Lowe's and get one of those portable buildings. For all the TDC does that is all the space they need.
And what happened to the oiginal intended useage of the bed tax money? Or was the taxpayers lied to?

What was the "original intended purpose of the bed tax"?

Maybe someone will buy it and restore it to it's original form. That remodeling job was awful.
