Markie and the boys could not get one bid on the Better Flip house. Remember that they stated that they had hundreds of people walk through and everyone spoke glowingly of the renovated bungalow. The opening bid was to be $160,000, but they got how many bids? Answer: ZERO, NADA, ZILCH., less than ONE!
So what is the Port Authority’s solution to the problem? Why let’s list it at $179,900! Yes, that is the answer. The public will never know about the three basement walls that had to be replaced and the unregistered contractors used to perform the work. That was swept under the rug a long time ago…nothing to see here…just move on.
Wonder if Commissioners Cirino and Young and Mayor Regovich will be helping to sell this home. They could be door greeters extolling the virtues of selling a home that cost $299,000 of the taxpayers money for $179,900. That is what happens when you do not start a project with a budget.
Markie said any shortfall will be considered marketing expense. The taxpayers have another name for it. Insert your name here ____________________________!
