My Sep 30, 2014 comment about Toledo's blight authority

http://toledotalk.com/cgi-bin/tt.pl/article/178241/15Jun2014/Blade_blight_article_Dont_know_whether_to_laugh_or_cry/297#183512

The water authority talk in the other thread made me wonder if any updates existed for Toledo's blight authority.

The app allows residents to report a range of issues to the city directly from smart phones, tablets, or computers. The cost to Toledo taxpayers was $16,000.

Toledo’s charter requires the mayor to get council approval for any outlay of $10,000 or more. The mayor said the app’s $16,000 cost was divided into three purchase orders, negating the need for council action.

In 2008, when Mayor Collins was a councilman, he criticized Mayor Carty Finkbeiner for spending $100,000 to renovate a section of the Erie Street Market into a concert venue. The renovations at the city-owned market building near downtown was split into more than a dozen contracts, each below the $10,000 council-approval threshold.

Did EconCat88 get honored, or is he still being hunted?
