Congratulations Belleville Mayor Mark Eckert and the City Council.
For a commercial real estate development, all of you have made nearly every error pertaining to investing and/or lending that I have ever witnessed.

GET OUT OF THE TIF BUSINESS — YOU DO NOT KNOW WHAT YOU ARE DOING!

The key element that you appear to have neglected, on the Hofbrauhaus venture, is that you are accountable to your constituents and you have a fiduciary responsibility pertaining to how tax dollars are to be wisely invested.
