Milking the TIF cash cow?

CORALVILLE– Peter Fisher of the Iowa Policy Project was surprised by the number of local residents willing to sit through two hours of discussion on something as mundane as property taxes.
“I thought there would be a few really wonky types like me,” Fisher told the standing-room-only audience that gathered at the Coralville Public Library Jan. 4 to hear a presentation and panel discussion on Tax Increment Financing (TIF).

Newcomer to fill seat

SOLON– Jessie Ehlinger honestly did not expect to be appointed.
Ehlinger, 27, was selected last week to fill the Solon City Council vacancy created by the election of Cami Rasmussen as mayor.
“I knew I wanted to become more involved with the functionality and logistics of the city,” Ehlinger noted in an email Friday. “So I applied to be on the library board. When Cami was elected mayor and her seat became available, I decided to show my interest in this position on city council.”
