The city just passed a budget but not before layoffs and major cuts. And they are going to purchase a car dealership. Where is the council suddenly finding the money to do this? It is business as usual for the council and more backroom deals?

This is not the current location of the Chrysler-Jeep dealership. That dealership was consolidated with Elk Grove Dodge (in the auto mall) last year. The last business to occupy this facility was Bar None Auto Sales, which has since closed.

Looks like a great location for a shopping center. We need more empty stores that will not bring in more tax revenue. Or maybe low cost rental units to get our share of the welfare money. The increase in shoplifting should force Big Lots to close.

Too bad the new WalMart Superstore can't be compelled by the city council to build there. As the city council knows, they are impotent regarding WalMart's political and economic juggernaut. So instead, WalMart chooses to invade fresh turf next to a residential neighborhod regardless of the commercialism blight that will be created-- while the council pigeons coo about revenue streams. And the blight left by the vacated auto dealers will remain until taxpayers dollars are squandered on it. Maybe not now, but later. It's all about money, folks-- corporate profits and mismanaged tax dolloars.
