Is the Indiana legislature affecting your city or town?

March 2010 Update on Indiana Municipal Finance

(reprinted with permission from Indiana Municipal Consulting)

Once in a while it is good to spend a few minutes looking at the big picture in Indiana municipal finance, some links we found that are worth reading and pondering:

  • Hammond Indiana – Calumet Avenue Corridor Study – this is a survey for the public to give their input as the City of Hammond completes the plan for redeveloping the Calumet Corridor. (Via City of Hammond website). In the interest of full disclosure, Cender and Company is providing this analysis to the City, and you can see the background information and maps for this project at our website: Indiana Municipal Finance and Bond Consultants.
  • The Indiana Department of Local Government Finance (DLGF) issues weekly updates on the status of property tax bills in all 92 counties. We keep an eye on these updates as well as working to assist many of the northern Indiana counties with compliance.
  • Just across the border in Michigan’s lake country, Redamak’s opens today! (via #nwindiana twitter search)
  • The Illiana Expressway gained steam once again, at least the Lake County portion, when lawmakers on both sides of the aisle worked to pass legislation. (via Times)

What stories are you watching today, in economic development and municipal finance, Indiana is ahead of many states … but unemployment is hurting everyone.
