IS IT TRUE Part 2: March 1, 2011

IS IT TRUE that the Willard Library is expanding?…that the expansion is seeking some level of assistance from the Evansville Convention and Visitors Bureau?…that if the entire cash stream from the Innkeeper’s Tax would have been committed to building 8 little league ball fields and tearing down Robert’s Stadium that there would be no such funds available for leveraging to make much more value from that cash stream?…that this is the first of many forthcoming examples about why the $18 Million ball fields would not have been a wise use of these dollars?

IS IT TRUE that the parks of the City of Evansville really are could be a tourist draw if they were in any condition to do so?…that it is entirely possible that the Innkeepers Tax and the CVB may just have a role to play in the reclamation of the Evansville City Parks?…that some of the $18 Million was actually slated to do some improvements in Wesselman Park?…that the City of Evansville found a way to hold the project hostage to get Robert’s Stadium demolished with the Innkeeper’s Tax?…that something with the improvement of the parks would be a worthy consideration of that money?

IS IT TRUE that it has now been 1,391 days since the announcement was made on May 14, 2007 that the McCurdy Hotel was to be refurbished into luxury apartments?…that it has now been 1,245 days since the Evansville Redevelopment Commission at the request of Mayor Weinzapfel approved the spending of $603,000 to purchase the parking lot?…that City Centre Properties and Scott Kosene the developers of the McCurdy project are both listed as contributors to the Weinzapfel for Mayor committee for 2010?

IS IT TRUE that there are now 619 days remaining in the two years that the EPA had given the City of Evansville to present an acceptable solution to the Combined Sewer Overflow problem?…..that this plan is an expensive and complex endeavor that needs immediate attention to avoid the embarrassment and expense of another round of fines?
