Why? The City has yet to demonstrate a need to own this building. If the City owns it, there will be both costs associated with its upkeep, and it will not be added to the tax rolls.
It's way past time that the City stop trying to be all things to all people--and live within its means.
This is another bad idea--like taking on the Airport.

I am not sure misunderstand this. Why a a second bid? What happened to the first bid? How much was bid? How does the city plan to pay for this building? I understand that this building is " historic" and is the Spanish colonial style, plus it was designed by Bire Clark ( that will be enough for sme people start swooning), but does the city need it?

No, we don't need it but our City Manager likes to expand his influence. He can move some city offices into it.
And a greedy developer is competing for the building. No surprise there.
