Annex selling price laughable

To the Editor,

Re: City transfers ownership of annex, Dec. 18.

I first thought the article was a late April Fool’s Day joke or perhaps a typo.

But no. City officials actually sold a $500,000 building – the land is worth more with its prime location – for the grand sum of $1.

It’s another clear example in the long-running drama of taxpayers being ripped off through economic mismanagement of city officials playing Let’s Make a Deal.

They’re sending the taxpayers down the river of no return broke and with no hope.

The economic action for 2013 should be accountability and responsibility.
