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 Commissionâ€™s board room was nearly filled with people wearing red t-shirts that read: Save our historic buildings.
