City to take Home Depot & Meijer to the woodshed, and with luck, their big boxed butts will be paddled mercilessly.

Of course, Business First gets all corporate-fluff tumescent on us and immediately shifts into full financial circle jerk mode, with "appeal" in the text being rendered as "fight" in the masthead, as though some great principle apart from persistent corporate greed were being discussed.


First we hand them the keys to the city treasury via handouts, abatements and other economic subsidies, then they try to wiggle out from their obligations.

Big-box retailers Home Depot and Meijer have appealed their assessed property tax values in New Albany.
