SWEETWATER-Enough is enough, the City
of Sweetwater says.
Tired of watching the historic TMI/TMG
property fall into further ruin as an ongoing legal dispute drags on
between two separate groups both claiming to own the campus, the City
of Sweetwater has asked Chancellor Jerri Bryant to award it ownership
of the 144-acre property.
Mayor Doyle Lowe said city leaders have
received numerous complaints from citizens and former TMI graduates
about the property.
"The City of Sweetwater has
individual citizens, civic organizations and resident businesses
ready, willing and able to partner with the city with substantial and
in-kind goods and services to renovate, remodel, occupy and use TMG
property in the public interest," the city states in court papers.
The city further states: "The City of
Sweetwater has assets, cash flow and resources to manage the TMG
property in the public interest."
