The Way I See It!

I am an Ultra-Conservative, Alpha-Male, True Authentic Leader, Type "C" Personality, who is very active in my community; whether it is donating time, clothes or money for Project Concern or going to Common Council meetings and voicing my opinions. As a blogger, I intend to provide a different viewpoint "The way I see it!" on various world, national and local issues with a few helpful tips & tidbits sprinkled in.

What I Think the Common Council Should Do About the TIF

Cudahy, Development, TIF, Taxes

Please don't forget the meeting of the Community Development Authority of the City of Cudahy for Tuesday, March 9, 2010 at 5:30 PM at the City of Cudahy Municipal Building at 5050 S. Lake Drive, Cudahy, WI 53110.


Please attend the Cudahy Public Hearing Tuesday on the TIF and development.


On a related topic of the TIF district…


If three of Cudahy’s Common Council members had the guts, they should force an agenda item that “NO” development can proceed on the TIF District 1 (Iceport) until the TIF audit is final and complete and “NO” funds should be transferred from TIF District 1 to other land as well!


What if someone was going to back the Council in the corner, before the election is over, by allowing the train spur to be put in as to tamper with Wal-Mart coming back into the Iceport after Tony Day wins the election.  Of course, that is a “What If”!


Knowledge is power and by depriving swathes of people of knowledge, we retain power over them.


Don’t forget “TIF” doesn’t stand for Taxes Is Free!!!!

Mr. Schuknecht,


Could you please tell me when the full audit will be done on the TIF?  I am just wondering this before the “City” begins transferring it around and spending more of it, if we have an idea of what funds are truly left.


Thank you for your time and effort,


Randy Hollenbeck

May or June 2010.  We are waiting for the auditors to finish our regular audit about mid April.  The piece we are missing is the Special Assessment information from 1994 – 2004 within the TIF.  The Mayor, auditors, and I meet last week and we all agreed that the Special Assessment information is an important piece of TIF # 1, with that being said the auditors are meeting with me in May and they will direct me on how to proceed in securing this information from 1994 to the present.
