A set-piece political battle is expected this afternoon when in a special meeting city council considers giving final approval to a plan to expropriate a stretch of properties in the downtown on the south side of Colborne Street.
The South Side of Colborne Task Force is recommending that council proceed with its earlier adopted plan to take over 39 properties on the south side and two adjoining ones on Water Street, for a total 41 properties, between Grand River Hall and the Icomm Drive intersection.
The cost is estimated at $10.5 million, but could climb higher."
an open taxpayer check with no estimated or certain cost is a sure fomulae for disaster PR
