Just be happy that something is finally happening down there. Stop w/ the negativity. Our local government officials are much better than those in the WH, capital complex, and court.

Tessie strikes again! Stop hanging around those three mice. She chimes in with nothing but lies. First off Tess, Marietta happens to be a statute city. That means a council creates the legislation. In this instance, they said that money had to be paid back to the taxpayer, not the Mayor or Mr. Hupp.

To your disapproval, many members of this council have gone on the MT record at some point complimenting the Mayor, Hupp, & Coleman on saving what grant dollars they could. "Saving" Tess means that something happened in the past requiring lots of effort to prevent it from disappearing.

If they are so awful & caused monies to be lost b/c of ineptitude, why do FOTA/CAPS members shake their hands & thank them? What monies did they lose? Was there embezzling or fraud? Wait, wrong bunch. Why was it this Mayor that managed a plan through council to get something finally done?

Just be happy that something is finally happening down there. Stop w/ the negativity. Our loc

Not necessarily BeRight. Records or servers might need to be out of the flood plain but meeting rooms not necessarily. Nascarnut, the city owns the Armory property. Why would the council pay rent? Why would any city agency pay rent to be there?

Not sure I favor a move to the Armory for any city office, but I suppose something has to fill it. This should counteract any claim that the Mayor and Mr. Hupp made that the city should be paid back for the "loan". The "loan" was only necessary because of the ineptness of the Development Director and Mr. Hupp, causing the loss of other grant money.

The first floor is in the flood plane. the City offices would have to go on the second floor(the one that used to have the basketball courts) or the third floor. Steps or elevators for all.

Wasn't this one of the original ideas years ago when perserving the Armory was first proposed? And wasn't some of those who are soooo enthusiactic about it now were dead set against it then?

Love the idea!

Rennovate, move, then sell off property. Great idea. Kudos to Vukovic and the mayor for looking past the blinders. Taking care of the city's needs, then anything and everything else is icing on the cake.

Nicely done! Let us hope?

I agree, the Armory would be a great place for city offices. Then rather repair the downtown building, the city could sell them or tear them down. Oops, forgot this is Marietta, the city will then spend millions more on renovations of those buildings.
