Pretty soon you're talking about real money

At this point, whenever I hear that a company is relocating its operations to the city, my first question is: how much are we paying them? Looks like another $25 million this time.

At least it's a better deal than MillerCoors: 2,800 relocated jobs for $25m ($9k per job) vs 325 relocated jobs for $6m in city money plus $18m in state money ($74k per job).

Also in the news: looks like TIFs would be tapped for another $100 million for the Olympic Village.
