The Background
The Oct. 12 City Council meeting was council members’ first chance to discuss last-minute state legislation that made a big decision without their knowledge.
The legislation, introduced and approved hours before the passage of the state budget, effectively extended the Centre City Development Corp.’s lifespan for 20 years and allowed the agency to collect a big share of an estimated $6 billion in future downtown property taxes.
CCDC Executive Vice President Frank Alessi was the only one answering questions about the deal at the meeting.
