Who’s TIFs? Our TIFs!

Thanks to everyone that came out for the Fight for $15 rally and attended the Economic Development meeting as well. WE WON! It was clear they wanted to just quickly and quietly get the TIF policy approved without further community input, but we did not let them.

Keep in touch for more actions in the fight.
