Baltimore spends insane sums on house rehabs

June 22, 2011

I could not believe it when I read that Baltimore City is rehabbing four homes on Preston Street with $1.9 million in taxpayer dollars ("Is this house worth $475K?" June 19).

The government, as The Sun put it, hopes to spur development there. But if it doesn't work — which it won't — how about paying us back?

How many more times will this type of insane rehabbing be allowed to go on at taxpayer expense?
