Joe-- it's because various incentives haven't worked in many areas over the years because there's usually no obligation on the part of the new business to have to remain in business for a certain period of time. If you drive throughout the suburban area and look at the thousands of vacant storefronts, many of those businesses had received incentives. So it isn't a guarantee at all that these various incentives will result in an overall positive financial picture for a municipality.

Some many comments, so much misinformation! Go to the library and start reading the Ledger from about 1993 forward and see what the Village has done to pay for growth. To Walt, the units on Rt. 31 are in Oswego Township, not the village. To Oswegosmarts, look at the income from transition/impact fees that the village has collected to distribute to the different taxing bodies. I don't give a rat's tail if you were born and raised here, lots has changed over the years. Pay attention before commenting.

Coffeeboy for the "Good Ole Boys", Collecting impact fees and distributing them, Is that the best you can do. Pay attention to what. You are right lots has changed over the years, but since roughly 08 when the bottom dropped out did anyone make any changes to help the taxpayers. Have tax levys lowered. When you have the mentality that we can just keep raising taxes to make ends meet. Well wannabee that's the wrong approach. And while you metioned the Ledger tell me how many forclosures are in the Ledger nowadays. 6-8 pages.

Ayar, I'll bet they give it 1 year before 8 hits. So as it stands we're only getting apartments? I thought I heard some where that they were actually building lost cost housing, as in privately owned houses? I think the apartment idea surpassed any endeavor that the current board has approved so far. ( gag and vomit) We need business and it can't come too soon. Somethings got to help with the taxes as most homeowners are strapped to the max now. Budd, glad to see you're having such a wonderful day! It's your bright shining attitude and way with people that got you elected for a second term as Village President of Oswego. That would be Oswego not Oswego Township, correct?

Gosh, I missed the party. Wish I could have been here, then. Alas, no one will read my thoughts. Poor, poor, pitiful me.
