$70,000 is a stupid waste of money..

Who on the City Council voted to piss away that kind of money? They should be voted OUT.. Period.. No excuse..

$10 Grand will pay for a quality assessment of the medical center.. I do know that big bucks have been spent on upgrading the entire electrical system, including all the lighting over the past 20 years.. Money was no object until now..

Is the city council capable of getting the cost of the improvements done to the hospital over the past 10 years? It would tell the whole story..

I would rather AUDIT the City for a fee to find out if any of the fee's paid out benefit the taxpayer.. Its Highly Unlikely..

All records of income and expenses should be made available with a simple request since Mayo is a non-profit organization..

35 thousand came from SOH group ( local residents trying to save our hospital and city )

70 thousand isn't squat, our property values will fall more than that in the coming years...multiply that figure by the number of residents of Albert Lea. This is a fight for much more than just a hospital, it's Albert Lea's survival.

As Albert Lea becomes less attractive to retirees they'll relocate elsewhere shrinking Albert Lea's population and putting more tax burden on the folks left here. New Fire Station, New City Garage Facility, New Airport Terminal, New Sewage Plant, the Grandiose Scheme to relocate Front St. for lakefront property for another city financed project, dredging the lake/s will all fall on the residents left
in the quagmire of a dying city.

You let Mayo dictate your future by whining about a few dollars that's just the kind of talk they love to hear.

So, 35K here, 35K there, and more than likely a sh!tload of dollars spent on legal fees over what, the next 5-10 years? Then, just maybe, if AL if real lucky, the public will get the property on ED. But even then, the price would be pretty much market value.

Wind mills anyone?

^^I don't have a clue about plan B, but (IF) the city/county go the nuclear option market value is about 35 million, you couldn't build for that kind of money.

^^ I very much agree but if Mayo gets a wild hair going it's going to take a long time.
