Big Night For Ellisville
So, what is it going to be, Ellisville? TIF or no TIF?
Tonight is the scheduled final vote on the use of Tax Increment Financing (TIF) for a proposed development at Manchester and Clarkson Roads in Ellisville. We know why Show-Me Institute thinks this is a bad idea for Ellisville. If this TIF can be defeated, as far as I know, it would mark the first rejection of such a proposal by a point-of-sale city. Combined with Florissant’s rejection of a TIF recently, we would be making real progress toward stopping the constant use of subsidies around Saint Louis.
Stay tuned, and follow me on twitter (@DavidCStokes) for results of tonight’s vote.
