Who'll Stop the Drain?


Spike,

"The Burlington Micropolitan area lost around 300 residents in 2016, according to estimates released yesterday by the US Census Bureau."

This really is not news. This has been an ongoing trend for almost half a century.

Those who were productive, solid citizens retire and die. The dwindling number of young with any intelligence and ambition flee. Local politicians welcome Section 8 immigrants. Bumping up the numbers gathers more state and federal money doled out on a per capita basis.

Not all Section 8 immigrants are undesirable. An unhealthy percentage of Section 8ers receive EBT cards and enliven the police blotter of the Burlington Ad Vertiser.

How much longer until the population dwindles to where the Census Bureau deletes Burlington as a micropolitan area?

Is Residential TIF a Huge Conflict of Interest for Chamber?


Spike,

It seems to me there is a huge conflict of interest with this real estate TIF deal the Burlington City Council wants to jam down the taxpayers' throat.

The Chamber is a non-profit and must abide by IRS rules & guidelines to prevent conflicts of interest.

Does the Chamber endorsement of the Nagrocki deal violate their conflict of interest policy since Nagrocki sits on the Downtown Partners Board of Directors, another Chamber entity?

Also, has anyone read Nagrocki's business plan and financial proforma? Can the reason this TIF deal is needed be explained financially? Or is this another Manor Mall exercise?

Maybe someone will ask for and receive the business plan. It's a public document.

If it smells bad, think about Doug Worden & Bruce Slagle.

Stink enough for you now?
