Hope you enjoy sex and a lot of it, for your sure are being fucked and its not ending soon
Not really willing to give it up for the Downtown or the mythical Boaters who are not coming to Racine now and not going to be coming back well
Sorry you do not have much of a say in this do you?
See the City and County of Racine have real issues mostly because the city of Racine has no money the City of Racine is over 200 Million in Debit that’s right over 200 Million the City of Racine is time and again #! in Unemployment and from reading Racine Exposed we know that property values are dropping to the point that some buildings once worth over 500K that last year sold for less then 10% of that. With that add the idea that the county has made little or no effort to seize for back taxes not homes but buildings in the downtown some owing over 5 years of taxes, this tells myself and others that property in Downtown Racine has little or no value.
So with all this going on what are we seeing our local leaders doing? Cutting Costs ? Selling unnecessary Real Estate?
See the City and County have a plan, the plan as I see it is invest $$ in the Marina and we will pretend its working!
See right now our great County Executive spend good tax money to buy Reefpoint Marina. 6.2 Million ( http://journaltimes.com/news/local/county-moves-closer-to-reefpoint-purchase/article_d4582b34-40aa-11e1-98b0-001871e3ce6c.html) and the $$ quote ““Certainly, the economy’s not getting any better at the moment,” Pretasky said. “It was kind of a neutral investment; it hasn’t really done anything.””
Yes done anything well it has a restaurant that must be a huge generator of Rant right?
Sorry no see the county Budget tells us it pays no rent
Yes NO RENT must be nice no rent. I am sure Union Grove thinks this rocks.
Now in Union Grove there was a Feed Store selling to Farmers and others in Union Grove the place closed last year. Sad truly Sad a store serving Farmers closed. Might it been nice if THEY GOT FREE RENT? Or can only places catering to “The Boaters” in the Downtown, the same downtown that many building owners are behind on taxes get free rent well not free, see the tax payers are paying for that are we not?
But that’s not all!
Belle City Harbor yes the County want to get someone to develop this http://www.goracine.org/crepository/purchasing/Attachments%5C13-pw-012%5Cspecs.pdf
This great place where the Water is to low for most boating uses so the river would have to be dredged an older area so who knows how much Mr. X would have to come up with or maybe the County come up or the City/County with the money after all you exist to pay your taxes right!
See and that’s the end game.
What will the Local Governments do well that’s easy.
Working together a plan will be thought of consultants will be hired bids will come in and $$ will be spend
The cynic in me thinks that the plan will say great things and the powers that be will get on Dickert’s Network and lie and lie.
Money will be given to Good Old Boys who own companies so a few Union guys get $$ to spend change orders be given to make sure the max Rape of the Tax payer will be done but at the end of the day all that happens is that you get fucked for a few Good Old Boys get $$ hey lets play a game:
Any bets that if the project is from the county the GOP folks from the county get the $$ and the City it be Mayor John Dickert pals?
Does your Ass hurt yet?
