Mayor Weinberger Statement Regarding Coalition for a Livable City Complaint
 

Burlington, VT – Mayor Miro Weinberger released the following statement today in response to the Coalition for a Livable City complaint:

“We received the Coalition for a Livable City complaint this afternoon and have begun to evaluate it. From what we have been able to review, the complaint seeks to invalidate a decision to fund public infrastructure that was supported by nearly 60 percent of Burlington voters following a long public process. The complaint appears to be based on a basic misunderstanding of Tax Increment Financing (TIF) law. I fully expect the City will dispute this complaint.”
