  • The benefits of tax-increment financing

    I have had several people of late ask me what TIF (tax-increment financing) does for our local school system.

    Guess what! TIF gives the Tell City-Troy Township School System $120,000 a year to replace taxes they don’t collect.

    The Perry County Redevelopment Commission voted about two years ago to give the Tell City-Troy Township School Corp.  $120,000 a year until the year 2024.

  • United Way Youth Day of Caring another success

    United Way of Perry County would like to take this opportunity to thank the youth, youth group leaders, and various businesses and agencies of the community for taking part in this year’s successful “Youth Day of Caring” on Sunday, Nov 6.

    Youth groups joined forces to paint, wash windows, rake, clean, weed, clean out landscaping, move boxes and clear trails at locations across the county.  The free labor provided by our volunteers saved our local non-profits many maintenance dollars and numerous hours of valuable time.

  • Economic development never ends

    I have read statements made by political candidates who question the value of the Perry County Development Corp. These candidates may not realize but economic development should never end. The value that PCDC brings to Perry County is immeasurable.
