Business common sense hasn't been a strong point with Charlotte City Mangers or Charlotte City Council's "potted plants" who with the exception of Claire Fallon have remained mute of the Eschert case. Charlotte GuvCo would be wise to embrace the time proven adage "if you can write the check write the check".
