A report commissioned by the City of Birmingham regarding the health and status of VisionLand has council members and park managers fired up. The report, which uses "colorful" language to describe the operation was called "unprofessional" by one council member while the chairman for the park called it a "cheap shot."

Wait, they hired a former FBI guy to run the park? Man, they could have hired me to run the park and paid me half as much. ;)
If the shoe fits, find another one.

Let's see, Larry Langford hired Rob Langford to run the park after firing the manager who successfully ran the first season. Could there be some nepotisim here, or just a remarkable coincidence of last names?

Anyone have the 'stats' on this park? How much did it cost to build, how much public money invested and how much would it bring in its current state? Does anyone know about this group (N-Ovation Park Management ) currently managing the park? They are at least willing to manage it for $400K for the year while the guys trying to swing the Jazzland deal wanted $120K per month!
