Place your bets on WHO will end up with LaGrave field?
According to the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, your bet is about to pay off. Notice there is always a "but". The taxpayers will then own a restaurant and a ball field.
J.D. Granger, executive director of the Trinity River Vision Authority, reiterated that the authority and the water district have no interest in running a team or owning a stadium. But he said the agencies might consider buying the property if it is auctioned on the courthouse steps.
That wasn't even in the article about the Cats and LaGrave field. That was in the article about the contaminated site clean up.
The environmental director for the TRWD talks about long term health risks. Is this the same one WHO forgot to test the water in the Trinity River before promoting to the citizens to float with filth?
How much was budgeted for environmental clean up, again?
As part of a "dig and haul" project, crews are loading heavy metals buried years ago at the site of the former American Cyanamid chemical plant and trucking them to a landfill in the Hill County town of Itasca.
For the Tarrant Regional Water District and its political subdivision, the Trinity River Vision Authority, this is the first of at least 15 environmental projects that are expected to be completed within five years to make room for the $909 million flood control and economic development project.
"If you want to have residential use, then you need to clean it up to higher level so that long-term risk at the site is minimized," said Woody Frossard, the water district's environmental director.
