The Fort Wayne City Council will take up Councilwomen Liz Brown and Karen Goldner’s proposed changes to the Tax Abatement code. Â The code hasn’t seen changes since 2000 and is expected to be updated in keeping with the current Council’s wishes on awarding abatements. Â The public is invited to make comments in what’s being called a “courtesy public hearing”. Â
The above playlist concerns the proposed changes to the tax abatement code as discussed by Councilwomen Brown and Goldner, taped November 13th 2008. Â Please note that I was trying the new recorder, which I’ve learned has terrible audio recording capabilities. Â Even though I was sitting within feet of the two women, you will need to increase your volume setting. Â Please note that the last clip was recorded with my old camera and the levels return to normal which will require you to lower your volume setting. Â Lesson learned, I guess.
