Tax break minimum set at 50 percent


The council voted 8-1 to adopt the 50-70 and 25-30 percentages, with Don Martin the only no vote.

The tax incentive must by approved by the state, but that won’t happen until the city submits a specific project to the state. One possible candidate for the tax break is a proposal by Windover Construction to demolish the former Press Box building to build apartments across the street from the train depot.
