Latta also criticized the prospect of
the EDC negotiating with developers
and companies in private, and offering
concessions to compete with other
cities, exchanges which Council and the
public would not be aware when the
plans are brought before them. "We'll
never know whether they gave up the
least amount possible," Latta said.
BUT FRENZA maintained that
everything wi lbe public.
The needefor eEDC is also a subject
of controversy.~ Frenza said the
motivation for the EDC is "to develo in-
centives to attract the right kind of
company (to Ann Arbor) witheut in-
curring liability on the city." However,
Frenza also said the community "has
been very specific about the type of
business" it desires for immigration.
Latta said the EDC will have no more
powers than Council already has, the
tax base will not be greatly bolstered,
and the city is already selective about
the type of concerns allowed to move
here. He said the city can already offer
revenue bonds, which it did for Mer-
cedes-Benz. He asked, "If you've
already got people knocking at your
front door, then why set up free drinks
on your front porch?"
FRENZA SAID THE city will im-
prove its tax-base by $50-60,000 per
year. Latta said Frenza must have been
lying when he told Council he had no
projects promised or knew of any
awaiting the EDC advantages-if Frenza
could estimate the additonal revenues.
Latta asked, "How does he know that
unless he already-knows the size of the
projects coming in?"
Frenza estimates apply to $100,000-
$120,000 bond issuances for the
generation of that amount of property
tax revenue, according to the City
Assessor's Office.
Latta said he is concerned that Mayor
Louis Belcher might "stack" the ap-

Farber, who was cited for civil and
criminal contempt for refusing to turn
over his notes in the murder trial of a
New Jersey doctor, was allowed to
remain free pending appeal of the civil
charges to the U.S. Supreme Court.
THE NEW JERSEY court voted 6-0
to give Farber's attorneys until noon
Friday to apply to the U.S. Supreme
Court for a stay of sentencing.
The court decided by a 5-1 vote not to
hold a hearing on whether to delay Far-
ber's sentencing. It refused by the same
vote to consider criminal charges
against Farber. One justice did not par-
