“Last night, a St. Louis-based developer came before the Columbus City Schools Board of Education seeking approval for a 15 year, 100 percent tax abatement to develop the former Buckeye Steel site on the south side of Columbus.
Touted by the developer was $4.8 million in ‘estimated’ income tax sharing with the district and a ‘partnership’ which the developer values at approximately $253,000. What was not mentioned at all in the presentation was the total value of the abatement, reported by The Columbus Dispatch this morning at $8.9 million.
The CEA Book Drive kicked off Mar. 7 and will end on Apr. 18. We want to put a new book in each 3rd grade summer enrichment packet. Support our campaign by donating at least two new books appropriate for children reading on the primer through third grade reading level. A suggested book list has been given to your FR. At the conclusion of the campaign, a drawing will be held for four $100 Amazon gift cards for members who donate at least three new books. Give your books to your FR or building campaign chairperson and ask for an entry form for every three books you donate. Send your completed forms to Teri Mullins at the CEA Office (Rt. #2) no later than Tuesday Apr. 30. The drawing will take place on Friday, May 2. For more information about the campaign, call Teri Mullins at CEA (614-253-4731) or email@example.com.
