Clout City: Chatham Walmart Heads to Full City Council

Well we already know that the Chatham Market store is already headed to the full city council this week. But I'll give Howard Brookins the Quote of the Day for this one:
Still, Moore asked for the city’s attorneys to come up with a legal brief that would determine whether the city can take the big-box retailer to court if it doesn’t pay up. Moore wondered out loud why the City Council was rushing to approve the Chatham store by next week, and that prompted the store’s chief proponent, 21st Ward alderman Howard Brookins, to butt in.

“How is six years a rush to anything?” Brookins asked.
If anything was rushed it was the Pullman store and it seems as if the Chatham Market store will be ready to go sooner!

  1. Actually the Chatham store would most likely be the next to open. All infrastructure and site improvements are already constructed --utilities, roadways, traffic installations, etc. Walmart could begin building that store tomorrow if they could get their permit. Pullman will take some time to get to that stage.
