"The best way to predict the future is to create it."

In Friday's rag, the Regatta Committee finally posted their financials. They said they went into this year's Regatta $60,000 in debt, lost $20,000 on this year's Regatta, and are now only $40,000 in debt. Either that's New Math, or someone was misquoted. Next year they expect to be bigger and better with 6 boats instead of 4 and plan on having music at bicentennial park because millenials like music and they have to take advantage of the park to make money.
(I thought it was about boat races and not another music festival, but what do I know). Not wishing them any harm, but when businesses go out of business, they sometimes post "Closed for Remodeling"

Sandy when I go downtown it's about once a week. Does the mess at the library have anything to do with the changes you posted? I mean it's bad with books just tossed all around and it's like there's nobody cleaning anymore.

As of today, there is nothing on the proposed City Council agenda for tomorrow involving the Tack Factory and the forwarding of a recommendation to change the zoning to Historic Residential District. A required notice is needed when a recommendation is forwarded so that the public can respond. The only one posted is from a different location and will receive a second reading tomorrow night.

The Madison Zoning Board is meeting tonite and nothing involving the Tack Factory was on its posted meeting notice.

Does the library board read the form? Has anyone on the library board asked any questions about the library? Such as why I have three employees with their MLS degrees left the library this year so far? I have heard several complaints about the library. Does anyone else have any? Or is everyone happy with it?

I would inform the Stellar entity of our local illegal activities. We can never be 'stellar' with shenanigans going on. The same with ABC. We could have possibly won had it not been for the lies the local ABC bunch did.

In the recent past the city's preservation planner was provided a document from the state which declared the Stellar meetings subject to open door law - meaning the public must be informed of dates & times & be given the opportunity to attend. This morning another closed door Stellar meeting took place. That is bad news which will probably just get worse before the end of day.

Good news/bad news: how chemical clean up works- the developer asks the state for a preliminary opinion on a property suspected to be contaminated. The state does a brief search of public records & reports back . If a document is not part of the states public record then the state does not consider those findings when detailing a clean-up plan. In the case of our project- the developer & the state had possession of the 1998 contamination. The preliminary comments by the state indicated some minor cleanup was needed.

However, a few months back, a later more complete Phase 1 & 2 were discovered. The study was conducted during the Armstrong administration & was part of the EPA record but the state did not have record of it. This mattes a great dea because the study recommended restricting the use of the property to nonresidential. Basically based on the most current study the property will be more expensive & take longer to complete. But the project can still go forward & residents will be safe.

If you were against the Tack factory project because it posed a risk to families who would reside there- be assured the latest study is now a matter of public record and the State is aware and in possession of the entire study. The state will require the appropriate clean up to make it safe for residential use.

Admin reply: Sorry post by Tami-apologize for missing letters and punctuation. Had to send from my phone and my screen is cracked-

I too have heard the rumor about the Tack factory but been unable to verify. Comments seem to stem from one or two persons who have said, "the numbers don't add up" or "it will be like the Broadway project- start good and slowly deteriorate. I will be back later today with more information. Tami

Heard the Tack Factory project to poison old people is off because they were going to be forced to clean up the toxic chemicals before moving anyone in. Hysterical are in a tizzy because they didn't care if people got sick they just wanted the building restored.
