City of Rockland could get more tax income and a new facility from land sale

Rockland, Maine - — Rockland’s city manager is recommending that the city council seriously consider selling a 4.4-acre plot of city land on Burrows Street to a private owner. That sale
could result in $1.2 million in tax revenue and pave the way for the city to build a much-needed facility for storing city vehicles.

“Our analysis shows that this sale will result in more tax income for our city, and we could get a new
vehicle facility out of the deal as well,” City Manager Jim Chaousis said. “This sale fits in with our efforts to build a more fiscally responsible and effective city government, and we are recommending that the council entertain a bid on that land.”

The acreage is currently the site of the badly dilapidated, 1950s-era public service garage. “Sometimes I feel like you could push that building down with your bare hands,” Chaousis joked. But Rockland has not built a new one for years, in part, because of the high price tag for a new facility.

Rufus Williams Jr. recently sent a letter to the city council expressing interest in buying that plot where the garage now stands and repurposing the land into a warehouse and industrial production facility. Chaousis’ analysis suggests this might ultimately boost the value of the land to around $3 million,resulting in $1.2 million in tax income for Rockland over the next 20 years.

Chaousis analysis also shows that with $250,000 from the sale of the Burrows Street property combined with $500,000 in bond money previously approved by Rockland voters for a new sand/salt shed, the city could arrange to build a new, modern building next to the dump that would also house city vehicles.

“This could be a win-win for everybody,” Chaousis said. “We are always looking for ways to benefit
taxpayers and serve them better.”

EXCLUSIVE Actor Spotlight: Krista Marie Yu from 'Dr. Ken'

Photo Credit: Shanna Fisher
BY: David Mills, Founder/Editor 
From the state of California comes a very talent young lady by the name of Krista Marie Yu who currently stars as Molly in the ABC series 'Dr Ken' airing Friday nights at 8:30pm. She had small roles in 'Parenthood', 'Cougar Town', 'The Middle', 'Switched at Birth' and 'The Thundermans' among a few others.

Krista Marie Yu is a 2011 graduate of Carnegie Mellon University in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania.

Recently our founder/editor David Mills had the opportunity to interview this young lady from her starring in 'Dr Ken' to education and is she passionate about any charities. Here is what she had to say.

When did you start acting?
I always loved to perform. When I was little I was part of a song-and-dance youth group, called Showbiz in Danville, CA. Being a part of the group made me realize the positive impact performing can have on an audience.

Was it your dream to be an actress?
It has always been my dream to be an actress. I still dream of being on Broadway.

Are there challenges pursuing a acting career?
There are many challenges! I think that there are everyday struggles and expectations from the outer world that makes it hard sometimes to remember how important it is to believe in yourself first, before anything or anyone else.

Do you remember your first acting job, tell us about it?
