Thank You, Mr. Slesnick, Posted–Boy Scouts Not Welcome

The city authorities, instead of handing big city issues like the Biltmore lease mismanagement by the city manager, used a contract lawyer to send a letter to the Boy Scouts at the last minute before a proposed meeting at the Boy Scout House.
Also, it is my understanding that the Boy Scout House was donated to the them by George Merrick’s Company and that there is a probable dispute between the Boy Scouts and the city over the actual ownership of the House.
Should we celebrate the 100 years of Mr. Merrick’s house be foreclosing on the Boy Scouts? It think not, but who knows in these times of elections, bad budgets, high taxes and institutional failures of the city.
