https://www.southstrandnews.com/news/georgetown-city-council-approves-million-settlement-in-city-hall-lawsuit/article_a96f4a38-28a7-11e8-9482-c34c5b725ff1.html

Will the city attempt to fix the problems at the old city hall and the firestation?

Would $2 million go very far in correcting these issues?

Should we be looking to build a new city hall, or renovate the existing library after the County builds a new one, as I understand they might?

These questions also involve what to do with the dredging money from the 1% sales tax the County says they won't spend on dredging.

Does anyone know how much Tony Jordan got for that run down eyesore that caved in first years ago?

And have the Fords gotten anything for the Parrish Motors site?

No settlement amounts for Fords and Jordan. This, the first of several commissioned reports, says repair to each building will be in the 1.7 Million range and new buildings in the 2.5 to 3.5 Million range. Of course this was 2014 and everything involving Gov increases in price daily so pretty much add 1/3 to the cost now. Gardner commissioned a study and it was never released to my knowledge. Pages 5-10 of the doc detail the stabilization vs new build costs.
