Lots are now being foreclosed upon ..., 16 April 2010 [cached]
Lots are now being foreclosed upon in the area for as low as $25,000 each, said MRC member Randy Weiner, who also chairs the Marietta school board and is a member of the citizens parks committee.
Chalfant said, "I can't see (the MRC) selling them for $25,000 a lot. It just doesn't make sense."
Yet Weiner said he would be willing to allow the MRC to "take a bath" in selling off the excess MRC properties to be used as parkland.
"The loss is already there," Weiner said, noting the recession crashed whatever prices the MRC originally paid for the properties.

MARIETTA - With two children at West Side Elementary, Randy Weiner, 42, the new chairman of the Marietta school board, has a personal interest in seeing Marietta's school system thrive.
"I want our system to succeed academically and grow academically. It's important because it's my community and my kids are growing up in the school system," said Weiner, on why he serves on the school board.
The school district, Weiner said, is the city's backbone because of its ability to attract families while maintaining the property values of existing residents.
That budget, originally at $80.8 million, is now projected to end at $77.8 million, Weiner said. His board is eyeing budget cuts of between 8 to 12 percent depending on what the Legislature does this season. They will know more in March. If revenues from the third special purpose local option education sales tax voters approved don't come in as projected, the system will pay off less of its debt. SPLOST III was expected to pay off all but $500,000 of the system's $34 million debt, he said.
"Next year's going to be a challenge, no doubt about it," he said.
Weiner believes such an increase is achievable, given that the system's graduation rate six years ago was at 64 percent. The Performance Learning Center, a program for students to recover academic credits, has helped raise the graduation rate.
Georgia Schools Superintendent Kathy Cox's new math curriculum hasn't been favorably received by all, but Weiner is a supporter of the switch from the Quality Core Curriculum to Georgia Performance Standards.
From his conversations with teachers and his experience with his own children, Weiner said the new math is more rigorous, with an emphasis on word problems.
He does not think much of the General Assembly's efforts in allowing state funding to follow a student to private school. In 2007, then Sen.
Weiner believes public funds should only be used for public schools, though.
"Private schools accept who they want to accept. I don't see the logic behind it," he said of the legislation.
Becoming one of the first charter systems in Georgia in 2008 has made a positive difference for Marietta City Schools, Weiner said. Charter status has increased the system's flexibility while raising its accountability. Before going to a charter system, Marietta was financially penalized by $122,000 for breaking out the Sixth Grade Academy from the rest of Marietta Middle School. Its charter status has allowed it to receive that funding again.
Weiner also believes parents have more say over what goes on at a school through the school governance teams. School governance teams set their own dress codes, have input over the school budget, and work on the school's academic improvement plan.
Changing a less than positive community perception of Marietta Sixth Grade Academy and Marietta Middle School is another goal of Weiner's.
"People have a negative perception and it's starting to change," he said, attributing it to the age of the students.
When it comes to when the first day of school should start, Weiner would rather it start in mid August than earlier. In December, the board voted 7-0 to approve a 2010-11 school calendar that begins school on Aug. 12, even though a number of teachers wanted to start on Aug. 2.
"If I don't think students will be well served by starting in early August, I can't in good conscious start school then," he said.
The new board chairman sends out a newsletter to his constituents and walks the neighborhoods in his Ward 3. Although a number of his constituents don't have children in the school system, he wants them to be informed of what goes on. Weiner expects the superintendent to be accessible to the community and media and said Lembeck is doing an excellent job.
Weiner represents the school system by also serving on the city's Marietta Redevelopment Corporation.
Weiner, who was first elected to the board in 2006, holds a degree in finance from Kennesaw State University, and he is also a licensed real-estate agent. He and his wife, Kelley, own a window-cleaning business. He is a member of Marietta First Baptist Church.
