Citizen questions Harley deal alley give-away

Rick Kopps, of Denver, Iowa.

MASON CITY – Rick Kopps, of Denver, Iowa, made his way to Mason City and again attended Tuesday night’s City Council meeting.

Kopps’ mother, who is 82 years old, lives on the same block as the Harley Davidson dealership on South Federal Avenue.

Her home is the last one left on the block, and it is separated from the dealership by an alley the runs north-south that the City is vacating to Ron Minert, who owns the dealership, as part of an incentive deal to grow the business.

Mr. Kopps, who also attended the August 21st Council meeting and spoke to the council that night, asked the City Council and Mayor why the alley wasn’t sold to the dealership instead of being given away.

Council members Hickey, Tornquist and Lee did a good job of explaining the reasoning behind the decision to vacate the alley versus asking the Minert’s to buy it.  Watch the video to see more.
