A half-million dollar surplus and the first thing thought of is spending half of it on further studies and legal fees for the new Wilmington Convention Center hotel and the baseball stadium.
These people have never heard of a bad economy. The spending leads me to believe that the team, stadium, and deal with Mandalay has already been decided.
Why can't the city find more important uses for the money?
Or better yet, save it, if possible.
The future is not guaranteed to be fat and happy.
But politicians will find some way to blow it.
If you walk or drive down Water street or nearby, these streets will beat your car to death.
The bricks next to the riverwalk will trip people because they are not level.
There's a ton of useful projects if the money is to be spent.
But these city leaders want to ram baseball down our throats.
It's already a done deal.
