Dear Editor,

I have been corrected on the price paid by the city for the 17 acres on Lee Street. In my letter that ran in the Feb. 7 Outlook, I stated the city paid $27,000. The correct amount was $21,000 an acre. And the bonus the city got in this property is a potential superfund cleanup sight. Think of the jobs that would create! I have also been doubly reassured with a pinky swear that we have something big coming.

I would not hold your breath.
