Wow $50,000.00! That might cover the cost for the fuel to knock the area flat to turn it into something useful! We spent way more than that on the upgrades to it after it was closed! This and almost every project undertaken in this state for the past 10 years or so have been a TOTAL waste of taxpayer money!

Maybe someone bought an old bed & is advertising it on eBay as "the authentic bed that Mike Tyson slept in when he lived in Fulton County." Wow, what a sports memorabilia item that would be!

Big deal trying to make it sound like the county is going to benefit from this pittance compared to what all the other expenses will be towards INDUSTRIAL DEVELOPMENT? Give me a break- it's not going to profit anyone. . . . just provide "administrators" and "consultants" with excellent salaries & benefits and maybe even million dollar bonuses while boards look the other way, while the taxpayers continue to scramble to pay their bills. Why continue to develop land for industry while many such sites remain empty while the clever shysters play musical chairs with other IDA's.There's nothing to applaud with this news - only the Amish benefited by taking advantage of good deals with the surplus left behind and they deserve it as they know how to live within their means.
