Worth it or wasted - St. Petersburg Pier

Posted: Updated:
ST. PETERSBURG (FOX 13) -

It's been a landmark in St. Petersburg for decades, but it looks the Pier is in store for major changes.  Tearing it down will cost millions; rebuilding it tens of millions.

But even if nothing is ever done from this day forward, the debate has still proved costly for taxpayers -- the city has spent $3 million studying the issue to pay consultants, and the cost of early design and engineering for the "Lens" proposal. 

The money comes from city and county property taxes.  Is it worth it or wasted?
