The city overpaid MILLIONS for the Mossy Dealership and obnoxiously avoided learning its lessons from its mistakes.
At the time of purchase, public concerns were all attacked with city responses about how the Mossy Dealership was super duper turnkey and the city wouldn't have to spend any more money on it. Except for the gazillions of things that the city had to remediate, and upgrade, but nobody mentioned that stuff when the city was overpaying for the dealership and calling it turnkey. The council either looked the other way or figured no one would notice or care years later that they were full of crap.
The costs for the public works yard have been trickling in as hundred thousand dollar chunks for years. The newest charge is $180,000 for a back up generator. A good idea? Sounds good to me. So good that it must have been on the the top-secret list of future non-turn-key upgrades? How many pages long is that top-secret list?
