That IS the biggest fault of Government projects. They don't pay taxes AND they consume taxes. Because if a city parking garage is built there will be Government workers employed to run the ramp. those Government employees are overpaid and will add to the costs of Government, increasing taxes once again.<quoted text>
Sure it would be wiser..... exactly why the city won't do that. They'll end up owning the space. Maybe turn it into one big city-owned parking ramp, so it doesn't compete with their Pennfield project..... and of course if it's city-owned, no taxes.
Of course Government loves that because it allows them to expand their empire adding more management jobs increasing taxes even more.
