Last Minute Deal Spares Downtown Springfield Businesses

The New England Farm Workers Council recently struck a deal with the city of Springfield to pay off nearly $356,000 in back taxes and fees. As a result, several of the Council’s downtown tenants, including The Student Prince Café and the Fort Restaurant, were able to keep doing business as usual. How are the two issues connected? Republican/MassLive reporter Jim Kinney joined Carrie Saldo in the studio to explain how he learned about the situation.
