FINANCE AND AUDIT COMMITTEE recommends "HOLD OFF AGENDA"
Jeff Yates, CFO for the City, testified before the committee. There were three agreements that needed to be worked through and some environmental issues that needed to be taken care of before the next phase of this project could start. TIF Commission would be holding this item for one month. Mr Yates asked for this item to be held until all the issues had been resolved. Councilwoman Hermann talked about the way the economy had changed since this item had been brought before the committee within the last few weeks. Mr. Yates agreed. He stated that there wasn't anyone willing to buy bonds at this time. Councilwoman Hermann requested that this item be put on the Semi-Annual docket to be brought forward when the economic conditions improved. No one wanted to see this project be put on hold but the city wasn't in a situation where that type of money could be removed from the general fund. Councilman Johnson agreed with not taking money from the general fund. He felt that to do so would set a precedent for other projects to seek funding from the general fund. All committee members were in favor of holding this item until the economy changed upward.
