Rapchak and McD are not friends. Ray had petitioned for help and felt like he may have had some good things happening when HAST was being developed and then he did not get the items he was hoping for (i.e parking) so he packed up his toys and left. He moved out and leased his property to others and at last driv eby is selling his house in Hammond.Friends or not, you have to be "in" with Mayor McCheeze to have risked a claimed $2 million investment in a nightclub in Hammond.
Somebody in the City approved the business with absolutely no parking whatsoever. Again, you don't risk $2 million on a business and not think about the parking situation.
No, it makes a lot more sense that the parking ordinance "fixes" Rapchak's failing business. He'd sue the city and make out. All speculation until there is an actual lawsuit filed. We'll see.
I've noticed that Florida is a better place to go bankrupt than Indiana is. That's why it is more common there, you have more protections. That could explain the change of address.
