Towne City renamed NoTel Motel

Why not rent rooms by the hour and show X rated movies? Every room equipped with a 25 cent vibrator bed and quarter slots and Pabst beer in the main lobby. Revenue problem solved.

Ok Hell no on the bonds for the Town Club

I told you all 2 years ago it would fail. Only an idiot would pay 2 to 5 thousand a month to rent a tiny room. I admit it is a beautiful place, but not for that price. Good God this isnt New York or South Beach. So let it close. Put up a for sale sign. Look for a company that will buy it and turn it into an assisted living center. That would work there just fine. Then with nursing staff and all you could charge a fee that high. Must have been a group of real dumb butts to think that would work here.
Oh heck just sell it to Marriott. Peachtree Retreat and Spa

Towne Club update

I received an email from the DAPC that the item would not be discussed (the owners went another route with financing).
Thanks!
Betsy

Tyler, Betsy

They went or, are going?

They will be back if we even considered it!

Fool the public a little at a time and it works better.

Maybe the Tennis Center would be interested in it? Their credit is 490!

What stupid bank lent them so much money to start with anyway? Do we even know that? Peachtree National Bank, maybe? Oh, they are Synovis now. How many of the stockholders of PNB got out rich or at least clean? Is that also a secret?

Is there any connection to this dumb place (Town Club)?

I'll bet this isn't even Betsy's to know about! How about Haddix? Maybe M. King?

Towne Club redevelopment

16 mil in bonds to do this? Uh, HELL NO. That would be quite a bailout.

The complete failure of Towne Club should serve as a big wake up call to Haddix, Steve Brown and a few others in FC about the viability of turning PTC into some kind of retirement community as well as the need for this type of housing in the first place.

Re-Development of Town Club & 16 Mil?;

Boy, what a "hanger" that one is to put into this paper! For what, by who, when, $16,000,000 Bond, etc.! Close and re-possess the thing.

Now, are we into shilling for junk "jewelry" salesmen also. What is our cut?
I saw that bunch at the hospital last week!

Maybe D.A King would be interested if no Mexicans worked there!
