Hi there cyburbians! Many state constitutions prohibit gifts of public funds to private individuals, but it's not always clear what exactly constitutes a gift of public funds. I'm curious about planner's experiences with this particular issue. For example, is spending significant taxpayer dollars to change the zoning ordinance to financially benefit one or two individual property owners (i.e., allow them to develop more profitable businesses) a gift of public funds? Where is the commonly accepted line? And hypothetically speaking, if the line is being crossed what would be the proper course of action for an ethical planner who is directed to work on such a thing?
