On November 9, City Council directed the City Manager to take another look at the arena that the City is proposing to build in Duranguito. To conduct an economic impact analysis, and a cost estimate, to work to protect the existing building at the proposed site for the arena.
So far, the City hasn’t done any of that.
Tommy Gonzalez said he wouldn’t feel comfortable doing it.
In fact, the only thing that the City has done about the arena in Duranguito is to elevate their court case to the Supreme Court of Texas.
City Management is out of control. Our elected officials can’t do anything to rein them in.
The City Manager will do what he wants, and City Council won’t do anything to stop him.
We need TommyG to move on and move out. This will ONLY happen with resistance and engagement: I am looking forward to a mayor-council system of government, not a city manager system. Don’t give up Rich! I will not yield to the waste and corruption.
We should return to the system in place before Joe Wardy set up the change! Back to the past will bring us a better future!
Been saying this ever since Joyce whatsername began the rip off. We never needed this very expensive system, and we will be paying for it for many years to come.
“an economic impact analysis, and a cost estimate” This was not done early on; there was no business plan for the arena and how it would break even. David Karlsruhe pointed this out on his blog back then. More of the financial legacy of CFO Carmen A-C and Wilson. I always figured it would be a bust and Mountainstar would come to the rescue, offering to take the arena off the city’s hands for pennies on the dollar.
That may still be the plan.
SURPRISED? OH PLUEEZE.
