Cha-ching! Portland hires Ball Janik again.

This time City Hall will blow some big bucks to "negotiate" over the silly "sustainability center" project, which the Legislature has deliberately unfunded. Apparently they're "negotiating" with the real estate development firm known as Portland State University.

The university people will probably go get their own outside counsel, too, so that taxpayers can be fleeced on both sides of the table.

Nothing like dropping 25 thou on a high-priced outside lawyer over a ridiculously impractical building that may not ever get built. It's the Sam Rand way. The city has plenty of money. Go by streetcar!

Be happy, at least Steve Janik is only covering one side this time - Unlike on all his SoWa deals.
