You are posting with WAY too much logic and sense for this website. Your insightful post makes no sense to the morons who have posted on this thread so far.
Thank you. The blithering babble of hot air expressed on this issue is mind numbing and very sad indeed.

<quoted text>There were "business people" who wanted it. The problem was zoning and they wouldn't bend on that. The zoning there is single family occupancy. A church is a different story and is allowed in many different zoning areas. It would have been nice to get it on the tax roles but it didn't happen.
Watch what happens if they try to do anything but hold services. I wish the Church all the best.

The state should turn it into a methadone clinic or an AIDS clinic for all those Heroin addicts we got in the wonderful city of Rome.Nah,just let em keep passing around the same dirty infected needle.That should take care of the epidemic.
Let them either abide by the law, or die. It's that simple.

And I'm sure having a concentration of such human debris would be really appealing to the residents in the area. No, better to keep 'em over on James St.

Lose the Brown references,hes been gone for years.Your embarrassing your self. Mayor Fiasco has done an outstanding job of degrading himself thru his actions or lack of. No help required.

Ramona and the rest of the Common Council listened to those Brown Clowns about the city not taking it over and allowing business people to buy it. Instead, no business people wanted it and the state got the money selling it instead of Rome. And we wonder why Rome is going down hill and fast.
Another fusco failure. fusco could have told the Council that he wanted to take the property from the state for the purposes of flipping it. No such communication took place. The Council doesnt make the deals. They assure that proposed deals make some kind of sense. Chalk up another one for "Captain Slugo".

<quoted text>What plan by fusco??????? The council asked repeatedly for a plan and received nothing!!! Without some kind of financial forecast on the the project the council had NO CHOICE but to vote it down. To be clear fusco killed this deal. It is not good business to go forward with a project this involved without SOME kind of financials. "DUH, I THINK ITS GONNA WORK,I HOPE,MAYBE" Dosent cut it when you are SPENDING LOTS OF TAXPAYER MONEY! My money, your money. The real question is WHY was no plan presented. The admin. has lots of qualified people who are able to do a basic forecast on the property. I believe a number of plans were worked on and they all came up with the same end result. It would cost to much without enough return in savings over the current locations. That is why fusco never presented a plan. The council is there to ensure OUR money is spent "wisely". With absolutely NO financial info,and nothing but "DUH, I THINK ITLL WORK", they were forced to vote the way they did. GOOD JOB. THANKS FOR WATCHING OUR MONEY!!!!
This certainly gives me NO CONFIDENCE!

I have family that attend that church and have known many of the parishioners since I was a child and they are very nice people and have done a lot for the community including food drives and having safe Christian themed Halloween parties. I think their new location will allow them to further benefit the community and how could that be a bad thing for Rome.
I agree

I agree with you. I don't think anyone is upset about the church buying it. I think they are just upset about the city not getting property taxes.

It's a shame that those bible-f***ing psycopaths bought the building. Just what we need...a bigger nuthouse

You obviously don't know anything about this church or the people who attend. Maybe you should meet them before you judge them you might be surprised. I'm not a religious person by any means, but I know that the people of this church are some of the kindest people I've ever met. Even though I haven't gone in years most of them will still go out of their way to give me a hug and ask how me and my children are doing. Rome needs more people like them!

This Ramona broad - she got a nice rack? How about her genitalia? Is it of interest to men? She good to go? Just askin' since I may need a date when I get to Rome. Not looking for anything out of the ordinary but a man needs companionship and it sounds like she is unmarried and possibly available. What laundry mat does she use?
