A multimillion dollar lawsuit over the Red Hill Expressway...
To be dumped?

Re:Mayor wants to ditch lawsuit 'We need to get this behind us'

Mayor Fred Eisenberger wants to end a lawsuit against the federal government over costly delays to the Red Hill Valley Parkway.
He's lined up nine votes against the lawsuit, versus four supporters and three undecided. It's a reversal of the vote in 2004 when
a slight majority launched the suit.

The Red Hill Valley Parkway is scheduled to open later this year.

A slippery slope of trust and accountability speaks loud considering past city council adamantly supported this venue. When one totals
the cost to which befell this City due to the Federal Government, summarized and approximately $37 million dollars the $230,000 already
spent on legal fees seem trite.  It's interesting that the dumping of, what was considered the only recourse, is attributed to. "such as
Brad Clark and Scott Duvall who question the suit's merits."The interesting fallout is that, "Several councilors want to hear from staff before
casting their vote." Considering direction on this issue has already been voted on...?

"Eisenburger says, his reasoning goes beyond the money, to the principal of healing wounds in the community over the controversial roadway." 
What this really means is that he is prepared to dump those additional costs on the local community...A city with the highest taxes, the highest
poverty rate with a downtown falling into rubble...but then he hopes to that tax increases won't serge beyond 3%....with the largest jump is to
be in the out lying areas, Stony Creek and  Flambourgh....and I ponder if he will remember that it was those areas that elected him...There are
times when you have to stand up to the plate and swing...with intent...It's truly time for Hamilton to stand for something.....or when it comes
down to the nitty gritty are we just going to hold out a tin cup and play the beggars role forever...?

What do you think...?
