Mayor Huether only concerned about transparency when it comes to him

Howdy Doody lays it down!

Funny how Mike only cares about transparency when it comes to him,

The council’s reasoning on the Parks Board ordinance is transparency, but Mayor Huether says, that’s what’s missing from their decision to donate the Ice and Rec Center.

“Where have been the work sessions on this and the meetings with the public or even the meetings with the executive branch of government,” questioned Huether.

But, of course once again, he stretches the truth. The Glory House idea was first raised this Summer by councilor Starr, then in October he told city directors he was serious about the matter, but they just ignored him. The mayor tries to claim no one tells him anything, ironically it is always things he is opposed to. See a trend?

Apparently, when it comes to a contract or anything of value, the mayor needs compensation. Developers have no problem being awarded construction projects without competitive bids and at inflated cost plus guaranteed profit. For the 25 million Admin Building he ignored the funding petition, awarded the contract in advance, and started without a council majority vote.

Nothing monetary happens without paying off the mayor. The ice rink donation can happen if the property is first given to Huether so he can donate it and use it as an IRS deduction. Otherwise, offer him a Cadillac or gold bars.

Suddenly, I get it. The ice rink property can’t be given away or sold for less than market value. It’s collateral for loans and bonds. In the private sector, liquidating a mortgaged asset is fraud. A lesser circumstance is true for government. The mayor knows this property is overvalued. Sellers or gifting would reveal so. What Huether should do is explain this issue with the council but not necessarily the public.

How much overvalued are city assets used to secure loans? The Admin Building is with future sales tax revenue. The council should audit as soon as possible before insolvency if not bankruptcy.
