Eye on Loveland has a Question - What happens when six elected officials keep having secret meetings? Answer - You get a $600K property paid by taxpayers and a hope and dream.
On Tuesday, May 28, 2019 Loveland City Council majority led by Mayor Kathy Bailey authorized the purchase of property on First Street for $550K ( see attachment) and agreed to pay an additional $50K to resolve a legal dispute ( see attachment) regarding the same property. The total cost to taxpayers - $600K. There has been no prior discussion regarding this property, no outreach to the public regarding the need or plans for the acquisition of any private property and this legislation was passed by the council as an “ emergency.”
Check out our latest podcast - Back Rooms and Land Deals - where we discuss this $600K decision. Why is the city buying the property? What is the timeline of the purchase? What is the plan for the property? How are they paying for it? Why were the discussions conducted in back rooms and not in full view of the public? Join us, won’t you?
