Aldermen Support Murals, Criticize Houston Over TIF Funds


One dispute related to a downtown TIF project is being patched up… and another one is breaking out. 

 

Three Springfield aldermen are announcing their support for the use of $50,000 in TIF funds to pay for a downtown mural project.  That includes Alderman Frank Edwards, who last week used the term “fluff” when discussing the project, but now says it will provide a boost to downtown’s image. 

 

But Edwards and other aldermen are now criticizing Mayor Mike Houston, who claimed last week that the city council was draining the downtown TIF dry.  The aldermen say Houston is simply way off the mark.
