Building next to Arcada wasted buy
St. Charles, under the leadership of City Manager Brian Townsend, is wasting taxpayer funds again by purchasing the building next to the Arcada Theater. The building is in need of repairs and the city doesn't have any concrete plans for what to do with the building.
The city under Mr. Townsend's leadership also spent $31 million on the failed First Street Redevelopment Project. That $31 million amounts to over $900 for each man, woman, and child in St. Charles, and what did the citizens get for that money? The citizens got nothing but a bill that is causing the city to budget deficits for years to come. The developer got a few shops and offices after getting land free from the city.
What do you think? Is Mr. Townsend looking out for taxpayers and earning his $210,000 in salary and benefits?
