This correspondence shows Georgian Bluffs wanting to kill the deal until the election was over and Rhonda Cook preventing a meeting that would possibly keep the deal alive. Further Ronda Cook looking to “check out the buyers” before proceeding.
Rhonda’s job is to facilitate not dictate. She is out of her realm and trying to drive the bus and control the situation to her agenda. Put a Clerk in as CAO and you have the makings of a disaster! This situation pretty much proves that point.
There should have been a meeting with a recorded vote. They should of signed the deal kept the buyers at the table and then negociated with Georgian Bluffs.
The offer was clear that they could of terminated the deal within 60 days if they could not come to terms with Georgion Bluffs!
So here we are today sixty days later, not a word about the airport not a whisper about the deal. Iguess the new kids don’t care about it ! I know that a committee was set up before the election to put the deal together but they never had one meeting.
All members were sworn to secrecy, but you know what, I have had enough of their bullshit!
To Georgian Bluffs, Rhonda Cook, the TSBP Council Members that voted against this I hereby grant onto you the first ( of probably many) Big Bruce Moon, for your actions to kill the best deal this town has seen!
