Last month I wrote about the confusion surrounding widening Rupple Rd. Story The Fayetteville City Council has agreed to pay for the part that was initially thought developer Tom Terminella would fund. Although examinations of films and notes verified that Terminella had implied that he pay the cost there was nothing down in writing. No contracts were signed. A bitter lesson for the city council. Shirley Lucas, who represents the area around Rupple, says she's disappointed how it occurred and is determine that the council require all written contracts in the future. Another loser in the issue is Tom Terminella. No one is going to trust him in the future. Who's going to business with a man who goes back on his word?
