So what happens to that money?

Does it have to be rebid for projects that did not qualify since it was being used for demolition?

It should be no surprise to anyone that getting information is very difficult -- even with the sunshine and public records requests -- often the info is incomplete and scattered.

So, in answer to your question -- that information which is REQUIRED to be readily available by HUD through easily accessible means, is being guarded and handed out reluctantly, if at all.

When I was 22, I wrote a children's story called MalBova, the Evil Cow Sorceress. It was about a young sorceress who worked in servitude to a very powerful evil witch in order to betray her and steal her terrible Wand of Power, which gave the user complete power of pain or pleasure over others. However just before the Wand of Power was stolen, the old witch cursed it so that yes, it would give great powers to the user: the ability to cause Crushing Pain or Ecstatic Pleasure in others, but it would only work on cows. The Story was about the choice of being a regular person or choosing terrible powers, even if it only worked on barnyard animals. Naturally, rather than give up on power, the young sorceress became MalBova the Udderly Horrible. Now I realize that MalBova is a surprisingly common and depressingly true story.

Kim Scott, the controversial City Employee responsible for so much large scale destruction of the historic districts of the north side will be leaving office this year.

Retired.

Stephanie Burch will be replacing her as the head of Neighborhoods.

Perhaps now we can move forward with progress instead of destruction.  I had an opportunity to speak with Stephanie last night and I like her!  She brings a fresh new perspective on how things should work.  She has been serving as the Chief of Real Estate Division in the Public Works Department since 04/26/16 (date the resolution was adopted) and is currently waiting for confirmation as the Director of the Neighborhoods Department.

From the Bill: 
Quote
Ms. Burch received a bachelor’s degree in fisheries and wildlife from Michigan State University and a law degree from Florida Coastal School of Law. She has worked as an attorney, since 2005, with various firms, including Burch Law, PLLC in Jacksonville. Ms. Burch has served as the Chief of the Real Estate Division since March 2016.

I, for one, am looking forward to fostering a positive relationship with someone who is open to change and forward thinking.  :)
