Meeting set to demystify economic-development language

A citizens group has organized a public meeting to discuss tax abatements and economic development at 5:30 p.m. Monday.

The session is sponsored by the Unemployed and Anxiously Employed Workers’ Initiative of the Northeast Indiana Central Labor Council.
