from section 151-30 of the Revised Municipal Code:
If a proposal is tabled by a committee and no action is taken to remove it from the table or to reassign it during a period of six (6) months, the proposal shall be deemed postponed indefinitely and shall be removed from the calendar of pending proposals.Both Proposal 15 and 16 deal with expansions of existing TIF districts; the consolidated downtown TIF and the Fall Creek TIF, respectively. Both were tabled at the February 6, 2012, meeting of the Metropolitan & Economic Development committee of the Council. That started the clock ticking. Six months from that date occurred on August 6, 2012. These proposals are dead and must be reintroduced in order to be considered. Reintroduction would send them to committee where proper (both legal and ethical) notice could be made to the public and real input from the public could be given.
