Clarification from Chris Schmidt on this item:

Item 14, Legister 29485, the revised TIF Policy, is on the agenda to add a referral to CCOC. That referral was requested at the last CCOC meeting. Also, BOE has yet to review the policy. The TIF Policy was not placed on the agenda for debate tonight. The revised consent agenda will reflect this, but I felt I should let everyone know ASAP lest confusion continue to grow.

31. Legislative File No. 32590 – SECOND SUBSTITUTE Authorizing the Mayor and City Clerk to execute a loan agreement with Lutheran Social Services of Wisconsin and Upper Michigan, Inc. or an affiliate legal entity, for up to $795,000 $500,000 in Housing Development Reserve funds and up to $295,000 in Affordable Housing Trust Funds for the development of multi-family affordable rental housing at the Tennyson Lane site and amending the budget of the Affordable Housing Trust Fund to authorize the expenditure.
