(Hillsboro)--A third town hall meeting regarding the revitalization of downtown Hillsboro was held Thursday night. During the meeting, City Commissioner Chris Sherer unveiled a Springfield Ordinance that would help with vacant buildings in downtown. Under the ordinance, owners would have to register vacant buildings. Sherer says that a similar ordinance in Hillsboro would help with the current problem in downtown. The ordinance could also be used for homes as well.

Sherer says the names will be released and possibly passed during the Hillsboro City Council meeting on Tuesday, August 10th. Several in attendance expressed there desire that a mix of downtown business owners be placed on the committee.

TIF District

Information was also given out regarding the establishment of a TIF District in Hillsboro. According to Montgomery County Coordinator Chris Daniels, Litchfield did most of its recent work from TIF funds. She stressed that the district does take some time to get started, and funds could only be used for infrastructure needs. Commissioner Chris Sherer stated that a TIF District has to expand past the downtown area for it to work in Hillsboro.
