Hutchinson officials urged to end housing program



HUTCHINSON, Kan. - The Hutchinson Housing Commission is recommending that the city council allow a two-year-old housing incentive program to expire.
 
The Hutchinson News reports (http://bit.ly/1qM7dxS ) the New Construction Housing Incentive Program was created amid a deep housing slump.
 
The program offers a rebate on the city portion of property taxes for any new home bought between Jan. 21, 2013, and Dec. 31 of this year.
 
Housing Program Manager Irene Hart said last month that it was rarely used and did not spur new housing in the city. She says only six new homeowners received rebate checks when they were delivered in July.
 
The incentive expires in December, and the commission unanimously voted Wednesday to advise the city council not to renew it.
