Hey Milton did the Wyndham Hotel work out for you?

I now understand why you are an angry shriveled little man...$1,900,000 in tax rebates  and yet you could not pull it off...Even Roy uses you as a punch line...P.A.T.H.E.T.I.C

I wonder how long it will take your business partners like Zimmerman, Cohen, Kaplan, Lomax, Simons,  House and others to realize that you are nothing more than a liability and  an unimaginative dead weight.

Maybe Zack will welcome you back on the DGI'll fit right in, picking up right where you left off.

Tactical mistake Milton, natural selction is on my side!

Milton Kern, why are you driving by my house real slow?

It' s been a difficult week and i was looking forward to sharing a beer with my guys shooting the shit taking pride in all we accomplished this week.

That was until I received a call from the city's engineering and inspections department at 4:30  today, telling me that there was complaint filed regarding my ongoing renovations in downtown Greensboro...after a little righteous inquiry, i was told that Milton Kern, notified the city of my ongoing work and wanted to make sure that I had the proper permitting...after he was told that I did, in fact, have the proper permits, he decided that he wanted to review the plans my architect submitted.

Obviously, milton objected to an additonal emergency exit the city had me add as it opened onto the sidewalk ...the code requires an additional exit if the diagonal distance from the existing door is more than 75'...well, I had 72' but , safety first, so I spent more money and was only too happy to accomodate the city's penchant for safety.

But now, the city wants me to go to council to ask for a variance or spend more money and change the approved door in order to create yet another downtown recessed urinal...of course it is not enough that we already have to clean up weekly homeless defacation  on the property...or is it Milton's?

 Time will tell how this one gets resolved, but one thing is for sure, i waited for my permits for over 6 months and i am not about to start the process again because of  dried up scrotum Milton Kern.

In the interim while I am flatttered to be able to give Milton a hardon without his daily Cialis, i wish that my suitor did not look like Kermit in Depends...

This "has been" pathetic douchebag is trying so hard to remain relevant that I almost feel sad for him... Really I do!

I am not sure what it feels like to have to dye your hair  and whore yourself to the local papers to  justify one's existence...from a downtown retirement community to a homeless shelter in the old jail, Milton's Idiocy is unparalleled...

So Milton, as much as Ii would like to use your triple chin as Rocky would use a speed bag, I will tell you that I pity you...but my pity has limits ,so this is me, telling you Milton Kern  to go Fuck Yourself. 

And, if I open my emergency door onto the sidewalk, i hope you happen to be walking by!

What we have learned today from the mandatory meeting to bid on The BID

-The total budget is now a total of $600,000.

-The city will no longer take out roughly $334,000 from the BID funds, as it used to, for the daily downtown sidewalk cleanup and daily garbage removal. 

-The city will now pay for all these additional services itself from the general funds...including flower baskets and blooming corners.

-80%of the BID monies will now need to go towards programs and not salaries or administration fees....
So, according to the RFP , no more than $120,000 could go towards salaries, fringe benefits and rent. 
(Zack may quit but will most likely try to snake more money out of us serfs).

-MWBE  will now be a criteria in contractors' evaluation 
( about time!).
Considering Zack's lack of support for all things non-white, he will most likely focus on the W.

Oh, i almost forgot, DGI came out in force today  with 4 board members and the entire DGI staff. 

Good thing that Zack brought his staff as he was playing with his phone the entire time, visibly annoyed he had to be there.

Pop Quiz...Downtown edition

Bobby and his friends are downtown Greensboro property owners  who pay extra taxes annually in the amount of $600,000/year.

Bobby and his friends are aware that out of the $600,000, $334,000 is being paid to the city of Greensboro for daily garbage collection , flower baskets and sidewalk cleaning. Bobby and his friends like what the city is doing for Downtown Greensboro.

 Zackary, the local bully now takes $150,000  off of the remaining monies for himself and gives an additional $60,000 to his friends he calls "staff" .
 Zackary also decided to give another friend of his $40,000 to rent an imaginary fort noone needs.

Now, How much is left for Bobby and his friends who paid the initial $600,000 and what value are they getting out of it?

Riddle me this Batmaughan...really!

There are three MSD in the city of Greensboro... Aycock, College Hill and Downtown Greensboro.

The city has no oversight or say so in who manages Aycock or College Hill. The board is voted in by the property owners of each neighborhood.

Now, according to the recent city issued RFP, the total upcoming budget for Downtown Greensboro will be $600,000 with no city contributions. 

The $600,000 represents the additional extra tax assessed on downtown property owners.

So...if there are no city monies involved and if the entire MSD is funded by downtown property owners, then why is the city even involved in who manages us?

Why not have a good ole fashion vote by all like the other neighborhoods?
