The Marion County Board of Supervisors met yesterday and had a discussion about the proposed Adkins development in the city of Pleasantville. The project is still in the planning phase, but board chair Mark Raymie said that while the development agreement will be similar overall to the county’s current projects in Prairie Ridge and the Knoxville VA property, it will likely have one key difference in the distribution of TIF dollars.
Raymie said that he would be presenting a formal agreement to the board at a later date once the details become more clear.
The board also had a preliminary discussion on the county’s budget for FY24 and where the numbers stack up for employee salaries and health insurance. They agreed to revisit the topic during their final meeting of the year on December 27 with more concrete numbers.
