G.E. has announced they are leaving Billings.  It’s goodbye to 60 jobs and hello to another 40,000 square foot building that we will be left with.  It was a 9.3 million dollar building that was built with the help of 1.75 million of incentives funded by taxpayers.


Hey City of Billings put your convention center there and a bike path around it.  How in the world are we going to support and maintain a 170 million dollar center in downtown?  We don’t have the population base or commerce to support a project that large.  Learn from the mistakes that others have made and it might prevent future burdens on our town and taxpayer
