...Hill Carrow, director of the championships, said he asked the county for support a year and a half ago but was just able to get an audience with the commissioners at their next meeting, which will be held Thursday.
“It took this long to finally get it in front of the entire county board. The fact that the championships are about to get underway made for a natural deadline for the commissioners to consider the request.”...Carrow said
...County Manager Brenda Jones Fox said the county hasn’t been dragging its feet about the request. In fact, when Carrow initially approached the county he’d asked for much more and been denied, Fox said.
“His initial request, in November 2009, was for a $100,000 grant,” Fox said...
...In a memo to the Greensboro City Council in June, City Manager Rashad Young said attendance for the nationally televised event is estimated at about 100,000, with 10,000 hotel rooms rented in the area...
that didn't require an "audience"
and was rejected by Guilford County without an "audience" in 2009,
is Mr. Carrow full of siht?
Wait, how much did the City of Greensboro give without City Council approval?
Didn't Rashad Young give the Downtown Skating Rink money without approval?
How many city council members questioned the allocation?
"pad a private business owner's bottom line with taxpayer dollars"?
What does "extortion" mean?
Has the economic impact study been reviewed by Greensboro's City Council?
Was the impact study reviewed by Rashad Young?
Where is the impact study?
If Rashad Young "officially announced" Greensboro's contribution over the summer of 2010,
why didn't the public hear anything about it?
If Greensboro's City Council got the memo,
how many attended the "announcement"?
many may consider to be something of a fraud,
that was used to sell Greensboro City Council and the public
on the Aquatic Center?
"can’t have any debt service,”
before helping convince Greensboro voters to borrow $19 million
for a money pit that disrupts Coliseum parking?
who created a $14,337,210 hypothetical economic impact “projection,”
say only debt free competitive swim centers work?
