FDL City Councilman Credits City Manager For Firm Stance On Retlaw Debt


Fond du Lac City Councilman Rob Vande Zande credits City Manager Joe Moore for not giving in to the owners of the Retlaw Hotel and denying their request to give them even more of a break on debts owed the City. North Main Hospitality owners told Moore Wednesday they’d wire $25,000 right away if the City would forgive the remaining $14,000 plus the City was seeking for back taxes and fees. Vande Zande says the City has already waived more than $100,000 of what is owed. He says the last thing the City Council wants to do is make a decision that will impact the employees of the hotel and the events that are booked there. Vande Zande says if the money North Main Hospitality owes isn’t paid to the City by a June 25th deadline the Council will have to vote the next night not to renew their liquor licenses.

I can't believe we forgave these tax frauds over $100,000 in debt.... I would hope everyone in the community would be upset by what North Main Hospitality has done to a great downtown hotel... It is a disgrace they can still operate a hotel.. Once a jewel in our city is now an after thought...

Based on these articles I do not have enough detailed information to know if this business is struggling or if these are a bunch of crooks. If it is struggling then we need to help them. If they are crooks, then we need to get tough. Can the council say that they know the details and can make an intelligent, informed decision? I would like to see that information clarified. After all, if they can waste millions on round-a-bouts, they can come up with a few thousand to help a local business.

The city should buy it and turn it into a homeless shelter! Or maybe a halfway house for crack heads.

I bet if I owed $135k in back taxes, I'd lose my home.
