Board Bill 246 by 16th Ward Alderman Tom Oldenburg to provide the conditions under which reallocation of Prop P funds may be made with Board of Aldermen approval.
This bill does not prevent reallocation of the Sales Tax and Use Tax. It makes the Board of Aldermen a real player when it does happen.
This bill does not impact any other earmarked sales and use tax money. The City is free to reallocate those funds for purposes other than what voters intended.
Board Bill 207 by 6th Ward Alderwoman Christine Ingrassia to establish a Community Improvement District (special taxing district) for hotel at former site of Harry’s on Market.
We have lost track of how many subsidized hotel projects there are in Downtown right now. This hotel is getting…
- 5 Years 90% Tax Abatement
- Sales Tax Exemption on construction materials
- Keeps 1% Sales Tax from via Community Improvement District controlled by company
The Company also owns Residence Inn at Jefferson & Highway 40, which collects and keeps sales taxes from a Community Development District and Transportation Development District.
