Prop 15 Up For Public Hearing Monday Night

In a very unusual move for a non-fiscal ordinance, the Council agenda for Monday night includes a public hearing regarding Prop 15 - the expansion of the consolidated downtown TIF district.

This is the proposal for which we know little beyond the foot print for the 112 acre expansion to the east and the 614 acre expansion to the west and a deal worked out behind closed doors between Deron Kintner and Vop Osili.

This is the proposal that should, by Council rules, be dead on arrival because it was tabled for more than 6 months.

This is the proposal the was not legally amended at the committee level, yet passed out of committee 'as amended.

So, dear public, you have the weekend to prep your comments.  7:00 pm in the public assembly room of the City-County building.  Expect the usual suspects to be rounded up to speak on behalf of this very expensive pig in a poke.

By the way - yet another TIF is being introduced Monday night.

How do you know when Deron Kintner is lying? His mouth is moving. An old joke, but it applies.
