City Of Tyler Taking Action To Revitalize Downtown

Wednesday Tyler Mayor Joey Seeber says money the city already gets from property taxes and new business will be used to improve downtown.

The city hopes this will attract new business.

"Other cities have used this as a tool to reinvigorate and reinvest in downtown. That's what we're doing. We're taking the tax dollars that will be collected on the growth only and reinvesting that in downtown for improvements," says Mayor Seeber to the media.

The recommendation was unanimously approved by the city council Wednesday.
