  2. WOW... Should have been condemned and torn down by owner and just been purchase for land value
    That would make a nice court yard / back yard for Perfect Settings

    2. Since Councilman Williams is so gracious to join in the conversation about properties in Columbia. In your past Property Meeting Minutes, which you Chair. Were the following land aquisitions discussed in your meetings.
      1.) River Park deal with Old Columbia Public Grounds Company for the procurement of alcohol consumption.
      2.) McGinnis Airfield
      3.) Columbia No. 1 Firehouse building located on Front Street

      What will be the cost of demolition or remodeling of the Bigler property? Was there a plan in place of use for this property? We seem to be purchasing properties with no solidified plans. Could you please answer these questions for the Columbia voters and why they should vote for Councilman Williams. Thank you!

  5. A former borough councilwoman once said that the borough is not in the business of real estate. I wonder what her thoughts would be on the recent great deals the borough made.
