EDITORIAL: No need for lawmakers to stand in the way of an Eisenhower CID

There are several storylines in the effort by owners of the Macon Mall to have a yet-to-be designated area declared a Community Improvement District by the state General Assembly. A CID is where business owners in the district assess an additional property tax on themselves to pay for what they see are needed improvements, such as landscaping, security and other area upgrades. No residential properties are involved. The effort must get 75 percent of the affected property owners’ approval.
