County continues to play hardball with Chevron over Enron Building
This previous post addressed Mayor White's premature announcement of ChevronTexaco's purchase of the former Enron Building in downtown Houston. Harris County Commissioners announced today that they are not inclined to grant the ad valorem tax abatement that ChevronTexaco was relying on in agreeing to the deal to the buy the building. Commissioner Steve Radack, hopefully in a fit of delusion, suggested that the County might step up and buy the building if ChevronTexaco backs out of the deal.
