City Council held a policy session Tues. to discuss tax incentives in so-called Special Service Areas. The subject is part of the ongoing discussions with the developer of a Portillo's restaurant in Peoria.
Councilman Chuck Grayeb says the incentives are misconstrued as corporate welfare.
"That is implicit in the analysis many people give this," Grayeb said. "They really don’t understand it. They think that we’re providing corporate welfare and we’re not.
