WMNF Drive-Time News Wednesday | Listen to this entire show:

Historic buildings in Ybor City could receive tax funds from Hillsborough County government under a proposal unanimously accepted this afternoon. Hillsborough County Commissioners voted six to zero to recommend that millions that would have gone to a county Emergency Operations Center, instead be earmarked for historic buildings such as the Cuban Club, Italian Club, and Centro Austuriano. This is Republican Commissioner Ken Hagan

The Commission’s board room was nearly filled with people wearing red t-shirts that read: Save our historic buildings.
