    I thought redevelopment was meant to beautify the blighted areas of a town? The reason these buildings in the better part of Galt is due to the owners' neglect of upkeep. Now they just wait for the Galt city council to buy them at supposedly over-appraised prices and then using other peoples' money to fund absurd amounts of money to the developer, builder, good ol' boy or sometime even themselves, a friend or family member. Redevelopment agencies and enterprise zones only add to a towns endless debt pit and are a burden on its citizens through ever higher fees, taxes, levies, etc. legislated by these same little good ol' boys and girls of their respective city councils' who also seemingly line their own pockets at the same time. Both entities should be repealed, never allowed to raise their ugly heads again, and let the wealthy, well-connected, andd good ol' boys and girls to pay their own way and get off of government welfare themselves.
