The city of Riverdale will continue to explore its options tonight for creating tax-increment financing district for residential development.

The City Council will discuss a resolution for an area known as Welch Family Farms and discuss the possible outcomes, although the Scott County Board of Supervisor has already objected to the prospect of approving a TIF.

In a letter to Mayor Sonya Paddock and the Council, the Board of Supervisors stated its consistent objection to approving TIF districts to private developers for single family residential development.

Also on Tuesday's agenda, the city will discuss and potentially take action on placing a question of TIF on the ballot.

In a memorandum to Paddock and the City Council, City Administrator Tim Long said that the city has been advised by the Scott County Board of Elections that TIFs cannot be placed on a ballot and that it is under the control of the Council.

"The City is not prohibited from conducting its own survey or ballot on any question," Long wrote. "The larger question remains, what is the question to be asked?"

The City Council meets at 7 p.m. at Riverdale City Hall, 110 Manor Drive, Riverdale.
