The hearing was slated so the city could take input from citizens regarding the potential for such a move by Buckley, which is scheduled to pay a total of $20,274 per year for the main, northeast and northwest areas of the property.
Buckley residents Calvin Bush and Marvin Sundstrom voiced their concerns with the lease agreement. While Sundstrom wondered aloud where the money was going to come from annually and who would be funding the maintenance of the property, Bush appeared more concerned with the possibility of the city committing to a long-term lease and making improvements to the land, only to have the state back out after the upgrades had been bankrolled by Buckley or organizations subleasing from the city. Bush also questioned if leasing the property was economically viable.Archives
Well, here we are again, forsaking the routine, workaday world to slip joyfully into romance. Bring on the hectic shopping sprees, gaudy tinsel and the multi-colored, twinkling flash of Southcenter, downtown Seattle, and living-room Christmas trees. We’ll stroll once more down Santa Claus Lane and through the dainty lights along Fifth Avenue.

(As Bruce Springsteen has pointed out, that’s one bank we can’t let fail.)Money in the pocket or for gas tax?
