City and Dollar General

I have to wonder what the city's hangup is with selling parking lots to Dollar General. When they first came to town the city wanted to sell them the uptown parking lot. Now here we are several years down the road and the city wants to sell them another one. The city bought the downtown lots from the fire. I think this would be a better option. Also if Dollar General builds a new store, what is going to happen to the old building? Are we going to have another empty building uptown? Or are there any plans to bring other business into the building?
