The city has obviously not been in a hurry. This property is 35+ acres in the heart of the city. It is unproductive and no tax money is forthcoming. Time is money. To show urgency is a sign of good property management. So they auctioned if for $6 million. I never suspected that deal would fly. The buyer forfeited thousands. The next bidder also disappeared and lost thousands more. It's down the the lowest $400,000 bidder who says he will have the money. We will see. The value is in the development that will generate jobs and taxes. Time is of the essence when the city is in such need.
