CUSTOMER: The city wants to see this torn
down and become a car dealership. CUSTOMER: Because they’ll get more tax money
from the bigger business. (Register rings) ROMERO: The fundamentals of eminent domain
is it’s supposed to be only for public use. And I realized that the city is saying this
is to expand Mercedes Benz. And I said wait a minute this is not the proper way of using
eminent domain. And I tell them I’m not going to sell it
because they are not telling me they want to use this property to put a school, a library or any public service use. They want to tear it down so that they can just park Mercedes Benz. What about us?
