OK, so the suggestion by Sen. Greg Treat that the city somehow be made responsible for finishing the American Indian Cultural Center is not going over well with OKC Central readers. This does not surprise me. But here’s the rub; more than $60 million in taxpayer money (both state and city) has already been spent on construction. I don’t think that it’s difficult to see that at some point along the way with this project, it suffered from inadequate oversight, inappropriate scope and bad planning (if it didn’t, wouldn’t it have been fully built and paid for by now?). So that said, with state and city money at risk here, let’s revisit the question asked by Scott Mitchell: who will be the adult in the room? Is it responsible to simply yell out “heck no, let it rot!” Is it the adult thing to say “these people have screwed this up, let them fix it” if it turns out the “these people” happen to be a state legislature and city council WE elected, and yet they didn’t bother to delve into the details of this project until it was going over a cliff? What if “these people” happen to be us?
