Why in the world didn't the city immediately repair the roof and whatever else necessary to protect this building from further damage when it received it from the Palo Alto Medical Foundation? If this had been done at that point, the taxpayers wouldn't now be having to spend even more money. It's a tragedy to see the Roth building rot away, knowing that someone was eventually going to have to pour money into rehabilitating it.
