The Public Hearing On TIF: Getting Schmoozed Again
29 Jul 2004 21:24 GMT
Tuesday evening, I attended the much talked about public hearing at Fayetteville’s City Hall concerning the proposed renovation of the old Mountain Inn Hotel and the establishment of a TIF (Tax Incremental Financing) District. For the most part, I have tried to stay away from meetings at City Hall lately. After attending so many of them and having watched a well-intended public throwing its energy to the wind, I concluded some months ago that trying to affect city policy, especially when it comes to its bowing to the desires of the developers is a waste of time.
