I am bothered by the article expressing concern over fungus because it fails to mention the Councilman investigating the environmental studies is a supporter of the Save the Carmel Grain Elevator effort, and nearby business owners who are criticizing the Mayor and CRC stand to lose their lease as a result of the planned redevelopment of the property. The elevators have been home to feral animals and have posed a risk for years, with no attention whatsoever from the people now purporting to have concerns about public health. Their concerns coincide with the demolition of the building because it is really the demolition they are opposed to. Claiming serious histoplasmosis risk appears to be a stall tactic rather than a sincere concern for the public. Disguising an alternative motive by raising artificial concerns for the public’s health is hypocritical.
