A Public Hearing With People

     Public hearings for county IDA tax abatements are so perfunctory the members of the Onondaga County IDA don't even attend. So it was a surprise when 75 people showd up to speak against the PILOT and other breaks for the developer of Syracuse's Inner Harbor project.
      There is a mood change out there and while it will likely be approved by the appointed board, such deals draw more fire than they used to.

Good for them! These 'Development' agencies/corps have become an insult to taxpayers. It's high time the majority locally were shuttered.
