TIRZ: In order to set up a funding mechanism for development at the Gulf Inland Logistics Park in Dayton, the city and Liberty County created what is called a Tax Increment Reinvestment Zone. We have aired several reports on the Dayton TIRZ. but there may still be some misunderstanding about what a TIRZ is and how it works. Speaking to the Dayton Rotary Club, Dayton City Attorney Brandon Davis said the TIRZ is a way to reimburse a developer for building costly infrastructure improvements to their property. He said, unlike other methods of paying for infrastructure, the TIRZ only affects the ad valorem taxes of the property inside the zone itself.
****************************************************
