MATA: On Shaky Ground.. Literally

Ground continues to swallow MATA headquarters

I pitched this story for months before finally getting the green light.  It's about MATA's headquarters slowly sinking into the ground.  It was built on an old landfill.. And the ground continually settles.  Recent studies say relocating the operations and administrative offices would top $60 million.  Making this story happen on short notice proved to be a challenge.  But the always helpful MATA public relations person eventually got me an interview with the boss and a tour of the damage.  I even did my pre-taped "look live" underneath one of the buildings, now exposed by the settling.
