East Bay Township questions tax break

TRAVERSE CITY -- East Bay Township officials are questioning why they should give a $21,000 brownfield tax break to a development on a clean site.

The Grand Traverse County Brownfield Redevelopment Authority is pushing the special designation for the nearly completed Traverse Bay Bear Company sportswear and souvenir shop on the corner of U.S. 31 and Three Mile Road.

Township Supervisor Glen Lile said he doesn't see the advantage of granting the designation.

"We don't have a blighted area, we have a brand new building there," Lile said.
