While I have been saying this for years, it seems we are getting closer to a reality when it comes to the City of Salisbury leaving the GOB within the next two years.
Of course I predicted this. I had stated that they would sell off the parking lots Downtown for peanuts and land a deal with the buyers to rent space from them. How else can they keep the Good Ol' Boy system in place. Sell to your friends for next to nothing and reward them with monthly rent that would guarantee them a successful investment.
So expect an announcement that Mayor Day will cut a deal with Gillis Gilkerson, (or whatever they are called now) for construction to begin on parking lot 1, (2 hour free parking lot) because THREE Mayors refused to pay the $1.00 to own 1/2 of the current GOB. It just never ends around here.
