Ugh, the little bit of money that the county does get for housing is determined by CDBG and HOME regulations where HUD requires plans and public input, but I bet you (unless you are a long time housing advocate) have never heard of it. Well, the “public hearing” was last night. I just noticed it yesterday when I was doing the week ahead and then couldn’t find the plan that we were supposed to comment on. Sigh. And based on Supervisor Wegleitner’s comments, I’m sure they are glad I didn’t find it sooner.

Their new billing scheme they are proposing is ridiculous, it discourages energy conservation and rewards large businesses – no surprises there, its business as usual, leaving the “little guy” out in the cold, perhaps literally.
I don’t know if there is any hope that the City of Madison will adopt anything but the race to the bottom economic development strategy where huge amounts of money are given to developers and large businesses and we might get a few jobs for a little while with no guarantee of those jogs existing in the future and little else.
