Carter School Funding! We Don't Need Devon Group

I totally support Mayor Burchett's proposal that pays for a new Carter Elementary School with cash. You see the Mayor proposes selling the Solway property of NRR, selling Three Ridges Golf Course, selling the two Par 3 golf courses (one at Concord Park and one at New Beverly) With all of these sales, Knox County has the cash to build Carter Elementary.

So, there is no reason to contract with Knox County's IDB (Industrial Development Board) or the Devon Group. If the county is going to pay with cash. Then select a CM (Construction Manager)and go build it. Select a CM that guarantees to build the school for the stated price, not one dollar more. If the Mayor needs a recommendation of such a CM, I know one.
