The Vandalia City Council did not take any action at Monday night’s meeting on a TIF agreement that had been a hot topic of discussion for several council meetings. On the agenda for Monday night’s meeting was the possible approval of a TIF agreement with Dennis and Debbie Grubaugh. The funds asked for were going to be used on the wall exposed on the east side of the building at 507 West Gallatin after the removal of the collapsed buildings. Prior to discussing the matter, City Attorney Ryan Conner read a letter from his colleague Keith Jensen that stated he believed it would be in the city’s best interest to hold off on sighing a TIF agreement because of liability concerns. Conner said, from Jensen’s letter, that no TIF agreements should be signed until there is a waiver of liability of further claims in regards to anything in connection with the buildings that collapsed and then were torn down this past year. The concern is the city would then take on the liability issues. So, the recommendation was not to move forward with any TIF agreements at this time. After hearing the recommendation from Jensen as read by Conner, the issue failed for lack of a motion.
