The Tennessean, Joey Garrison, Dec 28, 2012-
Fresh off delivering $66 million in incentives to jump-start HCA’s move
to a future Midtown high-rise, Mayor Karl Dean’s administration has
orchestrated smaller property tax discounts to aid the growth of two
other companies. (link)
My Comment: This practice of giving tax breaks for companies to stay or locate in Nashville is troublesome. Is this really necessary? Is this going to be the new norm? Every company in town should threaten to relocate unless they are given the same deal. I hope the Council takes a hard look at this.
