Viewpoint: City needs to get serious with Cutliff Grove

This week the Albany City Commission decided to give up on recouping more than a quarter of a million dollars from Cutliff Grove Family Resource Center is utterly ridiculous.   

The group was handed $374,000 in Federal Tax dollars by the city of Albany. 

They were supposed to build a low income housing.  All they did was buy a $95,000 piece of property.  Now they will happily give the city the $95,000 property to settle their $374,000 debt. 

What in the world is going on here? 

The Federal government is certainly holding the city accountable for the money.  The city of Albany already paid back the Feds with our local tax dollars. 

Why would the city not hold Cutliff Grove accountable? 

The excuse given is they don't want to get into a legal battle with Cutliff Grove.  The city will sure come after you and me for a $35 parking ticket, but they will write off $279,000 because they don't want to go to court?

This smells to high heaven.
