The Hubbard City Council got right to business at its meeting Monday night. Three specific agenda items took the forefront, including an amendment to the Hubbard Urban Revitalization Plan, the ongoing sewer improvement project, and new playground equipment.
The Revitalization Plan has been in place since 2004 and has been put into action on a few occasions for both homes and businesses. What the plan offers is a tax abatement for new and existing home owners and businesses. It offers up to 100-percent tax abatement for five years to home owners, and three for businesses. It begins with the first $75,000 of value added by improvement.
