    Democrat-run Minneapolis demands pre-payment of taxes in exchange for demolition permits

    In Minneapolis, on a desolate lot where Don Blyly’s bookstore stood before being destroyed in the May riots, two men finish their cigarettes and then walk through a dangerous landscape filled with slippery debris and sharp objects. The city won’t let Blyly haul away his wreckage without a permit, and he can’t get a contractor to tell him how much it will cost to rebuild the store until that happens.

    The main reason for the different recoveries is simple: Minneapolis requires owners to prepay the second half of their 2020 property taxes in order to obtain a demolition permit. St. Paul does not.

    “Minneapolis has not been particularly friendly toward business for some time,” said Blyly, who prepaid $8,847 in taxes last week but still hasn’t received his demolition permit. “They say they want to be helpful, but they certainly have not been.”

    In the rioting and looting that broke out in the wake of George Floyd's death hundreds of millions of dollars in damage was done. Laura Ingraham recently toured the devastation in Minneapolis and talked to suffering business owners. Watch below.
