Read all about the matter in today's Courier (here). Reporter Mark Spivey relates how Robinson-Briggs asked for a week to 'fine tune' an agreement the Solaris board was prepared to sign. A week that stretched into nearly three months.

Perhaps the Solaris folks were unaware that state officials had to DISPATCH A HELICOPTER for Mayor Robinson-Briggs when something was needed from her in a timely fashion (see here).

Just like the Rescue Squad proposal that was delivered to Her Honor and no one in her administration knows the whereabouts of.
