He Said-They Said

At the Aug. 6 meeting, city councilors voted to schedule a recall election of District 9 Councilor Don Harris along with the regular Oct. 2 municipal voting. Combining the elections guarantees that the recall will receive the minimum number of votes necessary. But it also might dilute the sorehead vote, making it harder to reach the also-necessary 50 percent majority necessary to remove Harris from office.
Councilor Michael Cadigan moved a 30-day deferral on his bill establishing guidelines for tax increment development districts (TIDDs) to allow all stakeholders more time to comment. A TIDD can have an enormous financial impact, because it diverts all or part of gross receipts taxes collected in a district away from city coffers and into infrastructure for that district. Stay tuned.
