“He says it adds up to about $800,000 a month, and the city is not paying this – Rex Sinquefield has stepped in actually at the request of Mayor Slay and has agreed to pay all these fees for these consultants up until a deal is made,” Walker explained. “And if a deal goes through – and if they strike a good deal – everybody will get paid, and then the money will then be paid back to Mr. Sinquefield by the city from the money they make on the deal.”
