Citizens League to discuss regional tax base sharing

The impact of fiscal disparities, which is Minnesota’s version of regional tax base sharing, will be discussed Tuesday morning at a session of the Citizens League’s Summer Policy Series.

The program runs from 8 to 9:30 a.m. at Aloft Minneapolis, 900 Washington Ave. S., Minneapolis. There is online registration, and the cost, with breakfast included, is $10 for Citizens League members and $15 for non-members.

Ted Kolderie, former Citizens League executive director, will speak on how the system works. Also speaking will be Kaye Rakow, director of public policy for NAIOP Minnesota, the Commercial Real Estate Development Association.

The fiscal disparities system has been in place in the Twin Cities since 1971 but was also introduced on the Iron Range in 1955, organizers say.
