This giant Illinois corporation is hanging out a veiled threat of closure to Portage City Hall, who are probably the business friendly types everyone keeps touting in Indianapolis and gave Walgreens all types of breaks and incentives to this out-of-state corporation.
Now Walgreens, a profitable corporate giant, is trying to find funds to effect a resolution to the problem of traffic pattern by study, planning and paying for a fix to the issue.
One would think this corporate organization would have a planning department along with a marketing and traffic study group to cover all possible problems and address them as they arose instead of appearing before the Portage Traffic Commission with a threat of closure if it doesn't do its bidding.
As to finding funds to affect a fix to the traffic pattern problem, a tightening of the corporate bonus belt, say one notch, might solve the funding problem!
