An article looking at Devco which is a New Jersey Development Company was written on Press Atlantic and can be found through the following link http://www.pressofatlanticcity.com/news/breaking/unpaid-million-crda-loan-raises-questions-about-new-brunswick-devco/article_a03318e2-dcdb-11e5-a563-67611bc7b7bc.html . Middlesex County Improvement Authority received a loan of $20 million from Casino Reinvestment Development Authority but unfortunately it is still in debt of this amount. The arrears are said to be to the amount of $ 7million. Middlesex County Improvement Authority acquired the loan to help it in facilitating the construction of the Heldrich Hotel and Conference Center. DEVCO was the company tasked with the sole responsibility of constructing the hotel. Brunswick is optimistic that it will pay the remaining arrears in due course and Casino Reinvestment Development Authority should be more relaxed.
Politics seems to take center stage in this and there have been calls to decline from offering construction contracts to private developers. They have been claims that the Heldrich Hotel is unable to cater for its expenses and Brunswick has been funding it. Projects being funded by loans from Casino Reinvestment Development Authority are on the rise. The most recent project is the Gateway Project that is in Chelsea City. Atlantic City has been issuing bonds to ensure that they are not placed in the same situation that Middlesex County Improvement Authority is in. The city is quick to ensure that it has well placed repayment mechanisms.
