The City Planner will review residential applications, and the Economic Development Coordinator will review commercial/industrial applications, to ensure proper documentation has been submitted and will inspect the property to ensure that the application information is consistent with actual work completed. Commercial/industrial applications will additionally be forwarded to City Council for approval.
Once approved, the application will be forwarded with a certification to the County Auditor. The County Auditor will then make a final determination on the actual increase in taxable value generated by the new construction, expansion or renovation project. The Auditor will then apply the approved abatement to future tax bills.
