Email to the Largo Mayor and Commissioners
To the Mayor and the Commission.
A couple of years ago, I noticed this freshly yellow painted older home on 5th St. N. in Largo. Shortly thereafter fire trucks were surrounding the building and I thought they had a fire but found out the Fire Dept. was training in the house. Next the house was jacked up and moved 2 lots over to 161 5th St. N. For months service trucks were parked in front. After sitting empty for over a year, I understand it just sold.
Here are my questions:
How much did the house cost?
How much to paint it?
How much to move it?
How much to rehabilitate it?
How much for all extras?
How much to re-paint it white?
What concessions were given to the buyer?
Add to that the cost of:
Putting grass on the former lot (where it was moved from.)
Planting a dozen palms and crepe myrtle.
Installing a split-rail fence.
Then converting half of it to a community garden.
Why is Largo in the real-estate business? Did anyone think this thru before starting?
Is this another one of Largo's boondoggles?
Your e-mail is received and has been forwarded to the Mayor and Commission for their information. I will also copy City Manager Craig and Assistant City Manager Staffopoulos to request their assistance in preparing a response.
