Here's the deception from your own post:
"They like any tennant will pay rent for the right to occupy."
Now finish the thought
And operate a 'for profit' business
The city did not build Verizon. They did not build PPD nor GE nor Corning. The city collects NO RENT for the privilege to occupy those facilities.
So why should this be any different?
THEY help the city prosper by paying property taxes and employing not tens of people, but thousands of people.
As for city parks and other recreational things the city pays for them so that ALL citizens can use those facilities - for free or for nominal fees without regard to profitability or not.
In this case the city has far exceeded it's function in regards to business operations. They didn't offer incentives they're offering to build a for profit business facility which will have cost the taxpayers a guaranteed loss of $44M after the bond is paid, while Mandalay and Atlanta profit from it
If that's NOT "giving" Mandalanta something, I don't know what is.
We are absorbing $44M of costs for them so they can maintain profits.
Its a pity your website does not reflect what we are indeed "giving" them.
