Talk about dropping the ball. No one thought about looking at the lease agreement between the city and district 7 for the Eton Center before this. Why didn’t the Mayor instruct corporation counsel to meet with district 7 to find out if the city could get out of the lease agreement with out giving one years notice? Really, come on it was only the subject of two town hall meetings and brought up at council meetings. The Eton Center is one thing the council and the Mayor discussed for closing due to revenue shortage. Yet the Mayor did nothing except put the lease agreement on the agenda. You can find it under back up on the city website. Look under city government council minutes and agendas.
Granted the lease is one dollar a year, but the city is responsible for repairs. Right now as the council has stated the Eton Center needs a new roof. The city would have to pay for this early estimates put the cost at $ 200,00.00. So what does this mean? Well how would we know considering the picture is incomplete. The information is incomplete something brought before the council without all the facts. How can anyone expect the council to complete the puzzle if there are pieces missing? Who holds those puzzle pieces? The administration at this point I think the council has to divide their selves up and everyone has to take on something. Oh wait if they do that you might have the Mayor yelling “You Are Micro Managing.”
