Jeff Pruitt over at Fort Wayne Left, has a post and commentary that you just have to read about the most recent actions of our City Council:
Our City Council does NOT understand Economic Development.
A couple of decades ago Fort Wayne residents enjoyed a wage that was just over the average National wage.
Today the average wage in this region is 80% of the national wage.
And for the second time in the last few weeks our City Council has granted a tax abatement to a fast food restaurant.
This will transfer $450,000 of taxes from Subway to other businesses in Fort Wayne.
Is there ANYONE who reads this blog that thinks the City of Fort Wayne should have granted a tax abatement to Subway?
