Missouri: Columbia City Council members facing recall threats

Columbia City Council members are facing recall threats based on their vote (taking place tomorrow) to establish a new Enhanced Enterprise Zone Advisory Board. Petitioners need 30% of voter turnout.
The group, originally formed to oppose the installation of surveillance cameras downtown, said Friday it opposes the blight decree required by the Missouri Department of Economic Development for local governments to take part in the EEZ program, which provides local and state tax credits to businesses that expand their operations with the borders of an EEZ, and tax abatement programs in general.
