Don’t be ‘duped’ by BATA millage

To the Editor:

Need another reason to vote NO? The BATA millage contains TIF language — that is Tax Increment Financing.

Recent Veteran, Library, and local road millages also contained TIF language. Simply put, the money is not going entirely to the issues you choose to support. TIF’s go to fund commercial development.

Let me clarify that: your tax money is going into the pockets of rich developers of private property. We are being duped. Enough it enough! Vote NO on BATA.
