‘Morning to the good people of Indiana. Been a long time since the last Saturday rambling was posted. It certainly isn’t for lack of subject matter, plenty of fodder to write on. Time’s a wasting, so let’s get to the down and dirties.
For those seeking further information about your local Tax Increment Financing (TIF) you will find a wealth of data on the Indiana Transparency Portal. Here you can find revenues, expenditures, assessed valuation, businesses and a whole bunch more.
Say what you will about our State, placing this data in the hands of the public is an awesome step on the part of our government.
At the onset of the portal, it was clumsy, hard to navigate and limited information. Responding to public input, the site has come a long way.
Take a gander.
