Aldermen Debating Use of Public Money for Downtown Art Project


Call it a tiff over a TIF.

 

Efforts to beautify downtown Springfield through public works of art have hit a snag.

 

Some city officials are questioning whether TIF district funds can legally be used for such projects.

 

Downtown Springfield, Inc. is seeking $50,000 to help pay for a series of murals on downtown building facades.

 

The dispute led to some sharp words among aldermen… with Ward 6’s Cory Jobe accusing some at City Hall of trying to throw a wrench into the project, which prompted Ward 1’s Frank Edwards to charge that Jobe was interested in, quote, “fluff” without asking the tough questions.
