Jonesboro: Developer friendly

Posted By on Tue, Apr 18, 2006 at 5:50 AM

Jonesboro, which already has signed off on funneling school taxes to developer Bruce Burrow's mall (which helped put another mall out of business) will consider tonight a sales tax to pay up to 75 percent of the cost to attach a convention center to a John Q. Hammons hotel. He apparently won't build the hotel without a city-financed room for meetings. The Jonesboro Sun. With all that money rolling in thanks to the TIF-subsidized mall, it's surprising a tax increase is needed.
