Local Money Pays for Ivy Tech Building
The Bloomington City Council is scheduled to vote tonight on a two million dollar deal that would help Ivy Tech Community College buy a new building next to its campus. The building would be used for nursing school programs, among others. The deal is being funded by certain property owners on the west side of town through what is known as a TIF district. Taxes on new development in that district help pay for roads, sewers, and other infrastructure projects in the district. In July, Ivy Tech Bloomington chancellor John Whikehart said the college needed money, partially because it was having problems getting funding from the state. Assistant News Director Joe Crawford talked to Monroe County Attorney Jeff Cockerill about why the TIF district’s funds would be spent on Ivy Tech, and how the new development could help the area. We bring you that conversation for today’s WFHB feature exclusive.
