Op-ed: Cost of multi-purpose center is mind-boggling (by Peter Children)

When I retrieved my paper from the mailbox this morning and opened it I thought I was having a nightmare. I could not believe my eyes when I read the proposed projected cost for the Taj Mahal has escalated to nearly $30,000,000.00….with cost overruns which is a given. Wow, this guy is surly smoking his socks.

They talk about a “committee” or a “panel” to be assembled to do studies whose conclusion will be dictated by dysfunctional misfits headed by our own fat man. May God have mercy on us all. I knew it would be bad but I never envisioned anything even close to this.

To make matters even worse there was Turncoat looking glassy-eyed at me from a head shot the Globe put in with the sole purpose to make me nauseous. There are unfounded rumors that the Landfill is softening on the CES issue….and that only adds to my discontent.

Now lets briefly look at the Council Goals as stated in today’s paper. It says the council wants a “more harmonious” relationship with HRC; well guess what, the relationship was always harmonious with every administration before the fat guy arrived. It turned sour because the fat man’s friend wanted it shut down and they didn’t have the votes to get it done. The fat man got real pissed because he didn’t get his way; wouldn’t appoint Sandy Servantez….did you forget that? Did you forget when he had her removed from the podium?

We have had dedicated workers in our sanitation department who do a first class job; now all of a sudden it is not good? What does the fat guy think about these city worker’s families; is he going to end their employment at a time when work is hard to find? Does he even care? The real truth is that Solberg wants to move it to one of her clients….and it’ll get moved. Remember the city changed insurance carriers a short while ago; some agency in Ankney got the business. I guess we are spending our premiums out of town….what no agencies who could do it here? They are talking about shovel ready projects…the fat guy should pick up a shovel instead of a beer bottle….it might do wonders for him.
