The developer who purchased a former health department building in Roanoke, Va., for $10 entered into a performance agreement that requires a high level of investment for the facility, including a performance bond, Mayor David Bowers said. The city will receive $140,000 if the project isn't completed in three years. "It's not just $10; you have to enter into a performance agreement. You have to put in millions of dollars," Bowers said.
