Saginaw Officials Eye Downtown Safety Upgrades 8-24-2010

The downtown district in Saginaw could soon get another public safety officer and new security cameras.
Officials are closer to establishing a tax increment finance plan that would improve the east side's gateway neighborhood.
Under the proposal, residents would not see a tax increase -- instead officials said the city would collect money only when the district's value increases.
Published reports said the tax capture plan could give Saginaw $80,000 for a public safety officer to patrol the downtown district, $50,000 for security cameras and between $50,000 to $100,000 on improvements to the downtown Farmer's Market area.
The City Council will vote on the measure at its next meeting in September.
