    Kevin, has the city of Lodi recovered that $300,000 they fronted Walmart for the outside work done by Mr. Bartlam for the EIR and other work the city of Lodi paid Mr. Bartlam to assure Walmart they would be able to start their new superWalmart project two or three years ago? Isn't that existing Walmart center in the enterprise zone?

    This sounded like a great rebate program until the enterprise zones were included. Wouldn't it be more beneficial to offer higher rebates to new or existing businesses that are not already credited with $37,000 tax credits that are in the enterprise zone? With better electric breaks encouraging new or existing businesses to hire new employees and possibly expand, that would be a much better program to offer than to include enterprise zone businesses that already get electric discounts. and some even utility and lease/rent funding, I assume, and another $37,000 for each new employee. Why not offer those struggling businesses outside of the enterprise zones the same $37,000 tax credit? Doesn't the enterprise zone change to accomodate certain businesses that normally stay in Lodi to give them these lucrative breaks, such as the newly acquired Lodi Nut Co.? Why not include those older Lodi businesses into the enterprise zone to help those who are struggling rather than just the preferred and well-connected?
