Fairplay Let's not forget that Mr. Jim Pruett the President of the Madison Riverfront Development Committee was right in the middle of all of it.

Can I get the city to put may dump truck loads of dirt, spread and seed my private property? Who do I have to * * * up to to get that done? I'm willing to kiss some serious city azz for free dirt and my ground is not anywhere near a waterway. How many taxpayer dollars did they spend on this new fiasco? Par for the course?

it was Auxier Investments, as in the local Auxier family of Auxier GAs that bought the property. They looked at the property a couple years back and talked to the people. But then the bridge work started and the mayor let Walsh fence it all off - apparently the mayor didnt even contact the old folks that owned it. Maybe he just assumed it was city property -with Welch you never know whats ignorance and whats dishonesty. Anyway the little old people were out the rent money they should have got- who knows maybe that was part of the bridge mitigation money scam that shuffled dollars to the likes of the CVB, historic group projects and Main Street. It doesn't matter at this point, what matters is this towns mayor was going to scam a little old couple out of what was rightfully theirs.

Anyway, months ago the river front committee and Andrew come up with some cockamamie idea to put in some sort of dock or walk out and tried to get Walsh to leave the little ramp they had built out for bridge construction. Since Walsh has been open about their feelings of Welch that they cant stand working with Damon and his crew it makes sense they refused to help out Damon with his latest scheme. That brings us to more than a month ago when Welch got p'd off and decided to go ahead and do something on his own down there since Walsh wouldn't help. Who knows maybe Damon blames the Auxier family for Walsh not leaving their ramp, but that's not true. That brings us current.

Welch starts dumping dirt on private property without permission- then tries to buy it and then messes up by trying to take advantage of 2 little old people and gets caught half way through. He denies he ever had a plan for the property but videos don't lie. He was dumping the dirt claiming it was part of some FEMA grant. But the grant didn't pay for property purchase just fixing the bank. The grant is easy to download or you can call FEMA like I did. So where was the money from the original offer coming from and how did Welch think he could get in an illegal bidding war?

Rivergate is lots more than dirt running into the river folks. Its about a mayor doing all sorts of unethical things. stay tuned for more info.

As deplorable and disgusting as the mayor's actions are; not just on his latest escapade -Rivergate- but on all of the others; the actions of the city council members and local news media are not much better. They are aware of his actions, yet stand by quietly without the slightest muttering or calling him out. They help make him the spoiled brat he is. They all read Old Madison, they can all take ten minutes and drive down the river and see that this latest mess is real, and most of them likely have gone down there, yet they say or do nothing.
Had they clamped down on him after the Mynette Boykin scam, maybe, just maybe, he might think twice before pulling his costly tricks on the citizens of Madison. But thanks to their complacency and his arrogance, we are in for another one year and five months of his shenanigans.

See what happens when a new mayor surrounds himself with incompetent people ? If the city dumped that sorry fill dirt on private property then they should halt all further activity. Its bad enough that we have trespassed on private property but they should not make it worse by trespassing to make it right. CONTACT the rightful owners and state your position!!! That is the proper thing to do. Maybe they are willing to work out the problem caused by your incompetent appointees and the city can put a halt to this calamity before it escalates into something really serious. DAMON GET YOUR HEAD OUT OF YOUR ARSE!!!! You have taken stupidity to a whole new level. Why dont you just resign.

The mayors gotten caught again and is panicking big time. The private property he was dumping dirt on that he tried to buy was sold to a local investment company. The group did everything legal and on the up and up. But not Welcher and Crook.

So as we speak they've ordered Sedam down to seed the ground and put in a silt fence. But - they still haven't gotten permission from the property owners -old or new to be doing what they are doing.

How many people do you know that can screw up free dirt? The city should have been paid to take that trash. There is no able minded person who could believe that stuff was worth hauling or spreading. It is just one more embarrassing moment for the mayor and his cronies. See what happens when a new mayor surrounds himself with incompetent people.
