CITY COUNCIL MEETING: The Public, Colts & Pacers invited

I just learned that there is a meeting at the City County Building (across from City Market) at 6pm on Thursday in Room 260 to discuss the Mayor's proposal.

Ultimately after the state gives its blessing for the tax hikes Mayor Ballard proposed today, the city council has to approve it. It sounds like Bob Cockrum is doing the lifting for the mayor. He was on WIBC today falsely stating that CIB is cutting $8 million from its budget. He also soft pedaled the nearly $40 million tax increase by stating there would be no property tax or income tax increases.


The TRUTH is that the CIB had a $20 million dollar budget INCREASE this year. Of that $20 million newly minted increase, they talk about a $8 million cut.

If the Mayor read blogs, and especially the comments left on blogs, he would know how the public feels about his proposal.

The public is voicing sentiment everywhere, including in the Indy Star comments, that the public wants the sports teams to foot the bill.
