It was 74 days ago that our City Council voted 6-1 under Executive Session item 2 to spend $28,929.27 “to address safety concerns for two structures” within the “Arena Footprint” in an effort to “work with the opposition to identify options for a resolution of the ongoing lawsuit.” The structures are the Chinese Laundry at 212 W. Overland and the Flor de Luna Building at 300 W. Overland. You can view the motion at the 9:28:10 mark on the City Council video.

For weeks, there have been construction and scaffolding materials neatly stacked in front of the two buildings, but no work has been executed.

The City staff have failed to comply with the City Council’s resolution.
