The second part of the plan places the town, residential and commercial, and the power plant in the hands of Marathon Banking. We do not know what that will mean to us as far as the housing goes. We know they will want to sell the houses but we do not know if that will begin immediately or if it will take a year or so to get the ball rolling.... the longer the delay the better for us on this one!
Since our job serves both the mill and the power plant, we do not know what to expect in that respect but I have a reasonable expectation of staying on since we are a contracted service they will need and it is generally more cost effective to use us than to hire inhouse people.
So that is the scoop on the situation here for now. Maxxam/ Hurwitz will be gone and a new regime will take over.
And this is the same area a week later....
I still need to plant something in those window boxes and that is all I will do in this area since we have no idea how long we will be able to stay here.
I think it looks a lot better even if it is rather barren looking. I will probably switch out some of these pots for some of my terracotta colored pots so they all match.
At least it no longer looks like the messiest place on the street and several people have already commented on the improvement.
