IS IT TRUE on March 30, 2020, a letter was sent out by Donna Holderfield, Zoning Administrator of the Area Plan Commission to a current City of Evansville vendor stating that he has a serious zoning violation? …according to the Area Planning Commission letter that Best View Transit Media LLC, the current City of Evansville METS Transit Media Advertising vendor, has been cited and fined $500 for being in violation of the City of Evansville Zoning Code? …we wonder if Best View Transit Media LLC, paid their fine to the Area Plan Commission and have moved their Corporate office located in an Eastside residential area of the city since receiving the May 30, 2020 letter from the Area Plan Commission? …this is a developing story?

IS IT TRUE that over the years the City-County Observer has studied and published articles that examine the economic expectations and realities of proposed capital projects within the Evansville City limits? …that our conclusions thus far are that a lack of planning has created an unavoidable last-minute quagmire that leaves the City of Evansville in the unenviable position of needing to provide significant incentives to secure a binding and enforceable agreement to entice a developer to build profitable projects?
IS IT TRUE that it is a common practice for a County Assessor to quietly increase home values? …to protest these increases, the homeowner has to obtain a certified appraisal costing at least $300? …that the cost of the protest will cost approximately the same amount of money as the increase in our property taxes? …it is also a common practice by County Assessors that even if the homeowner pays the cost of the appraisal and wins, the very next year the County Assessor will increase the home values back to the original increase and then some?
