Good Call, Ellisville
Ellisville officials made the right decision last night. They decided to delay a vote on the much-discussed Tax Increment Financing (TIF) proposal involving a proposed new WalMart at the corner of Manchester and Clarkson Roads. We have already discussed why we think the TIF would be bad policy.
It would have compounded the mistake if the Ellisville City Council had voted for it one day after a new mayor and city council were elected. Mayor-elect Adam Paul and the new city council will be sworn in April 18. Properly, the ball is now in their court.
