Alston: “More to it than meets the eye..”. Indeed.

Well now.

Meanwhile, over at Ed Cone’s, following up on his explosive blog post regarding Deena Hayes and Weaver/Quaintance’s freedom of information request, Yes! Weekly’s Jordan Green:

“What records do the city and county have referencing the hotel project or recovery zone bonds that could possibly be considered protected? On what grounds would they try to withhold them? And why would Quaintance and Weaver have to threaten a lawsuit to obtain them. I suggest every reporter and blogger in Guilford County duplicate their request.”

Good suggestion.  I’m in, but unsure how to go about it.  Sounds like it might be time for the Spag/Roch partnership to reconstitute.

Meanwhiler, downtown Greensboro’s meanest lapdog continues to dig himself a hole big enough to bury a multistory hotel, should the need arise.

(I forgot how much fun this can be)

    David, Has anyone called City Services about the water and sewer costs for a project of this scale. Did they confirm or deny that mains would have to be extended for miles? How will construction of the mains and connections be financed? Who will pay for said water and sewer should the project flop?

    Billy,

    Last I checked, downtown Greensboro had water and sewer service, so “extended for miles” is definitely a stretch.

    Upgraded? Hopefully, yes.

    Heh.

    Don’t know the answers to your “upgraded” questions, Billy. But I’m supposing that that would be you and me, along with others who pay Greensboro taxes.
