For, some years; I have watched the City of Lewiston, Maine Municipal Government with advise of the hired City Attorney negotiating without option of an exit clause for the City of Lewiston, Maine; pump, millions of Taxpayer’s money into the Bates Mil Complex.

Gives a $360 thousand dollar park; that, was built at Federal taxpayer’s expense .

City of Lewiston, Maine, City hired Attorney; allow, City to enter a Parking Lot Association; where, the city only had two (2) votes and the other three (3) votes were allegedly controlled by the developer.

2004 – City of Lewiston, Maine Bates Mill Exit Strategy, transferred Bates Mill to Developer it hired to operate; with, $27 million dollars. And, in the agreement promised to build three (3) parking garages and pay for assembling parking spots.

Then, issues a letter of option and then extension agreement to developer to the Bates Mill Number #5 complex without proper notification of any others might want to be an interested party.

Then, the City of Lewiston, Maine assumes an agreement to take control of a worthless; 1.5 mile canal adjacent to parts of the Bates Mill Complex needing millions of dollars of restoration for the bottom and sides leek, wood work timbers are rotting in place, concrete is showing ware and medal strapping is rusting in place.

Androscoggin Bank Colisee; Lewiston, Maine: over $9 million invested in renovations by city.   Sold for $1.2 million, new owner given 5 years before 1st payment due to City of Lewiston, Maine.  After, 5 year new owner ask for extension before 1st. payment; made, with owner behind in property taxes by $27,000.00. The City of Lewiston, Maine approved the request and resumed some control -of the facility that it was selling.

Now, owner is about $45 thousand behind with a looming payment due ?

Is there an inference; to, Lewiston, Maine’s, previous City Administration Officials participating in RACKETEERING ?
