OK, SO you are "betting" that a lawsuit can obviate the contractual requirement that the increased rate of interest be paid the developer. Will the lawsuit declare that the developer not be paid any interest at all? Will it revert to the lower amount, and is that amount acceptable?…

Regardless of the history of this contractual relationship, it would be most prudent to get the developer paid in order to eliminate this waste of Tax money. The TIRZ Board and the RDA have a fiduciary responsibility, I would think, to the public to not continue running up a huge interest bi…

Susan, Short answer is yes. Not ideal situation but remember it would be "repayment" to the developer for city infrastructure he paid to have built. The city and developer should get busy creating additions to tax roles and quit the wasteful bickering. Because of the contractually …

I have not read the statutes for this nuance - It would be very difficult I would believe for Political Subdivisions to create entities (such as an RDA) which could issue debt where the ultimate responsibility to repay the Debt didn't fall back on the Political Subdivisions. Take the Port su…

Really good thoughts on approach. GISD should consider this a "once in a lifetime" opportunity to create a plan for a school district that can truly address the future education needs of Galveston's children. It should be clear to all involved in the process that the future require…

Mr. Ponce – your post illustrates to me why this proposed legislation is clearly misguided:

“Having a law on the books is enough deterrent since most obey the law.”
Do you really not believe that there are sufficient laws on the books to deter any type of criminal misbehavior that…
