Carroll Mayor Adam Schweers Dec. 3 delivered a wide-ranging half-hour
speech to a crowd of about 40 people at the Knights of Columbus hall
during a public forum on housing. Schweers said he was not trying to
strong-arm a Kansas City, Kansas, developer’s 32-unit,
affordable-housing complex into the city. An earlier meeting in which
the Carroll City Council rejected local incentives to help the company
leverage an application for federal tax credits through the state got
“out of hand,” Schweers said.
