"Tax Free Parasite Whirlpool"

Received on this blog:

Do you want Whirlpool-Harbor Shores entities sucking up all of the Brownfield funding instead of addressing the contaminated sites near city public parks and in neighborhoods? Are these Brownfield elligible requests to further finance the tax free parasite Whirlpool? Please voice the communities need of what little funding remains. I have not looked up the property numbers but believe you already know who, what, where and why.
