October 15, 2007



Freshman Alderman Sharon Denise Dixon (24th) in her 2nd round question identified a major revenue leak in her west-side ward: the City sells land to churches for a dollar, then the churches don’t do anything with it! She’d like to get the property tax base working for us, but the City has sold all the undeveloped land in her ward to churches. Can’t something be done, she asks?

Seems like a hard way to cover a $300M shortfall, for next year, forcing pastors to build condos on their former city lots.
