A petition filed by two groups against the state of California for unconstitutionally influencing the elimination of redevelopment agencies could possibly be a major player in whether Galt is able to move forward with its Old Town building projects.

Galt has had to halt its Old Town Relocation Project due to the fact that two trailer bills in the state budget prohibit cities from using their redevelopment agencies for building projects unless cities first pay the government a specified amount of money to keep the agency open.

    It will be a problem for little towns like Galt to come up with a million cash when they are already living off borrowwed money. Unless they're like livable, lovable Lodi who has a garbage company that "donated" a million bucks to them. But the payback was a seven year extension on the garbage contract with no worries about having someone coming in with a bid for probably half what they charge. The three amigos are shrewd businessmen, but lousy councilmen that represent themselves and not the taxpayers and voters of Lodi, IMO. Galt would be very hard pressed to come up with that amount of money on a moments notice.

    Davis is paying the State about $3M and keeping $8M. Otherwise they lose it all.

    Doug, think outside the box.

    Let me think about this for one millisecond........invest $1 million and a return of $9 million.

    The thing that would concern me is the fact that if Galt decides to pay and the budget deficit doesn't improve soon, which many finance and economy experts predict may drag on for years, that the state politicians won't dump redevelopment altogether and keep Galt's money anyway?
