We need to know the value of the artwork thats here, LYCDC Chairwoman Joyce Kersey said after the meeting, noting no inventory or appraisal has ever been taken.
We have a lot of original art. Most of the artwork was produced by local artists and the hotel paid for the collection, Kersey said. As the Lafayette Yard Hotel & Conference Center navigates through bankruptcy to sale, the hotel board is allowed to sell the artwork separately from the auction. Kersey said reproductions valued below $1,000 would be included with the hotel sale. On Tuesday, the board voted to enter into a contract with Philadelphia-based October Gallery to perform the appraisal. The art company will charge $350 an hour to take an inventory of the artwork in each room, $8,000 for an appraisal report, and $6,500 to officiate an auction, plus travel costs negotiated from $350 an hour to $200 an hour. Kersey said the work could possibly cost $30,000, which would be taken from the $2 million loaned to the LYCDC during the bankruptcy process. The loan, which allows the hotel to keep its doors open until a new owner is in place, is guaranteed by the sale. So far, there has been one bid submitted to purchase the hotel for $5.5 million, Kersey said.

And Another Thing…

One immediate case in point is the current Chair of the LYCDC, Joyce Kersey.
Now, I don't mean to impugn anything about Ms. Kersey personally or professionally. I simply wish to point out that, in addition to her service as Chair of the Hotel's Board, Ms. Kersey is a member of the Trenton Parking Authority, having been appointed to a term that expires 6-30-2016. In this hypothetical, what does Ms. Kersey do? Whose interests does she represent, in this case? Does she demand payment in her role as Parking Authority member? Does she refuse, in her capacity as LYCDC member? Or does she recuse herself from any consideration of the matter on both boards? For now, that means respectfully asking Ms. Kersey to reassess her membership of both bodies, and resigning from one of them.
