  1. Is this payback for the water utility sale? We have so much to be thankful for but so far to go to get out of the mess we are in.

  2. Payback for the utility sale AND the Mt Daniel fiasco.

  3. If you are WMATA and you know how slow FCC operates are you going to wait for a small 2.2 square mile city to do anything or are you going to do business and partner with a larger jurisdiction that tends to do things a lot quicker? In other words, if you wait for FCC to do anything the economy might be in another recession. FCC is probably an after thought to WMATA and Fairfax County and a smaller player who moves so slow that is more centered on schools and taxes rather than development…it is not worth even going out of your way to notify FCC what you plan to do.

  4. Dale – I think you hit the nail on the head. FCC is not only difficult, but they are the JV team.

  5. I believe it is time to ask the City Council to revisit their decision that approved a full CIP. They are putting FCC into a financial risk with all the spending.

    If housing prices go down because of the new tax law, the city will have to increase the tax rate because they will lose money from lowering home assessments.

    Is anyone in City Council or is the City Manager a little worried? I am. Very. Much.
