C. J. Huff: Wallace-Bajjali left school district in bad shape
The Joplin R-8 Board of Education meeting began last night with a presentation by Superintendent C. J. Huff about the damage the departure of Wallace-Bajjali Development Partners is going to do since David Wallace did not live up to his promise to pay $13 million to the district, part of the agreement that was reached to end district opposition to the super TIF zone.
In the accompanying report by KOAM's Lisa Olliges, Huff talks about the possibility of a lawsuit, though in last night's meeting, it sounded as if the school district and the city will work together on whatever action is taken. KOAM TV 7
