Even fire stations with crumbling walls, rotten roofs and black mold don’t run cheap. One Lodi fire station has been sold for conversion to an engineering firm for $375,000.

In closed session, the Lodi City Council approved the sale of Fire Station 2 on Lodi Avenue to J-C Engineering based in Rio Vista.

    Don't those "administrative" fees go to the city to cover wages, awards ceremonies at the Wine & Roses, and expenses to those city employees who disburse the grant funds?

    Mr. Johnson makes a good point regarding the 20% admin fee. The article states this money must be " set aside" be the city but that's all it says.
    It would be good to learn how this money is actually dispersed once the city receives it.
