Porter’s where is the J-T?

 

As you may know The RFD responded to an alarm at Porter’s yesterday AM. Thank God was not a fire but the Sprinklers where set off(as of this morning no explanation why. )

The Fire Department attempted to find a Key Holder to come and turn them off, as of 11:00 AM yesterday from what I understand no key holder could  reached to do so.   I understand the RFD then left the site without entering the building,with the Sprinklers still on.

So much more we do not know and since this may be a cornerstone of Downtown Racine and is the subject of Tax Dollars being spend to lots of speculation if Porters will ever start (Note last few days The Journal Times had a story saying that the deal between parties would be signed by the end of this year 2013 now only 6 business days away)

We need to know far more then we do now, I and others are wondering why not even a peep out of the Journal Times as of this A.M.?

I, have talked to Mr. X about this and here are some of the questions we have:

How long did the sprinklers keep running?

Why were all the Key Holders unable to be contacted?

How much if any Damage was done to the building?

Why did the sprinklers go off?

If anything other then mechanical failure was ay fault, will The Racine Police/Fire Department investigate?

If there is Damage  (Let’s hope not) will the cost of repair be added to the project?

How much damage to call off the project?

Should that be the case so much damage that the project be called off, does the City get first claim on any insurance monies?

Any claim on the City being repaid at all?

If the project does not go forward what happens to the BID?

So many questions. Mind you some answers will take time to understand.

I wonder like Mr. X does will we ever know from the J-T?

A sad note

Yesterday I talked to an elected local official on another subject, when we got to talking about Porter’s Mr.E used the term Jewish Lighting.

Sad this is what happens when so much strange events happen in a city, everyone thinks the worst of everything,

IMHO I think that mechanical issues cased this to happen, If not I am sure that the Racine Police/Fire dept will find the parties causing this to happen.
