GOSHEN — Goshen Common Council members heard warnings that the state may not be in a position to help as the county faces tax revenue losses over the next few years.

Michael Hicks, the director of the Center for Business and Economic Research at Ball State University, presented the results of a study he and other experts in the center prepared over the past nine weeks. It was a more localized version of a presentation he gave to a group of mayors last week, which Goshen Mayor Jeremy Stutsman said was eye-opening.

The presidents trade war caused the demand for RV’s to decrease at the end of 2019? He couldn’t help but blame Trump for the slight drop in demand that is a regular seasonal adjustment. The RV industry is back and booming and sold out through the end of the year. A 1.8 to 5.1 percent decrease in tax revenue should not lead to depression era economies. Of course restaurant and hotel sales are down. Nothing is open and there really is no where to go. I hope they did not pay this guy a lot for his report.


Yep! Went by Thor on CR 15 yesterday and you couldn't have gotten another car in the parking lot! Just sayin!
