From the Daily Local News December 28, 2009:
"At a Dec. 23 meeting, City Council approved the agreement of sale with an addendum. The meeting began at 5:30 p.m. and lasted about five minutes."
The tiny ad that appeared in the December 22nd Daily Local News had to be placed before the RDA public meeting on December 21st. Why didn't Coatesville City Manager Harry Walker state that a special meeting of the Coatesville City Council would be called at that RDA meeting?

If City Manager Harry Walker wanted to push through Chetty's flats development before the end of the year there could have been a regular City Council meeting on December 28th. Was the meeting on December 23, 2009 held because of the article that ran in The News Journal, Wilmington, DE on December 27th?
In part the article states:
"Chetty Builders Inc. and its subsidiary The Promenade LLC, are under investigation by the Delaware Attorney General's Office. Carl Chetty would not say why customers' money has not been refunded, but he renewed a promise to repay them. Chetty wrote in an e-mail that he hopes to finish the project someday."Delaware towns: No home, no refund, no hope
