On Monday, December 3rd, 2012, 7pm at the Bradley County Courthouse in Cleveland Tennessee there will be a vote on a MOA, a Memorandum of Agreement for initial funding for the Spring Branch Industrial Park off exit 20.
The City, the County and Cleveland Utilities will be chipping in about 2 million dollars each up front just for the purchase of this property that was bought by a local businessman and a bargain price and selling it to the taxpayer at around a 600 percent profit.
Many things stink about the purchase of the property and that can be discussed in future blogs, but the message today is we cannot afford this vast industrial park and it’s many amenities and kickbacks to several involved.
Please plan to attend this meeting before the County Commission. We must hold our elected representatives to task when they waste and spend our hard earned tax dollars.
We cannot afford another drain on our economy. We as a county are broke. We cannot continue to spend and spend and expect to stay afloat.
Many have already committed to being there. Grab a friend and haul them down to the courthouse to participate in saving our local economy.
Call your commissioners, mayors and council men and women and tell them you do not want a huge industrial park in your community that will further drain your bank account.
