Ballston property owners want Wal-Mart decision reversed

Marozzi said the journal page confirms her ongoing suspicions that town council members met outside their regular business meeting schedule to discuss how to block Wal-Mart from proceeding.

"We have the right to know what was said at that meeting," said Marozzi Friday. "I'd like to see the board deposed. I believe there was talk about how the board's decision on Wal-Mart would affect their political careers." Marozzi said, however, her family's foremost concern is the ruling on the sale of their land for the construction of the super center was approved before the town's new zoning laws were enacted.

The Rossi family had out-of-pocket expenses totaling about $1 million preparing the land for the construction, including water and sewer line installation and inspection fees.

"We don't even want to be part of this (secret board meeting) issue," said Marozzi. "We just want what's rightfully ours."

Frank Rossi said Friday he is prepared to take matters to the State Attorney General's office if he remains unsatisfied with decisions to come from the county court.
