Greater Columbus anti-poaching pact is losing momentum

A recent editorial in The Columbus Dispatch discussed how twelve communities in and around Columbus have lost the momentum gained at the end of 2011 to create an anti-poaching agreement. The agreement is designed to reign in the practice of job-poaching and prevent Columbus and surrounding cities from "using tax breaks and other incentives to lure businesses and jobs away from neighboring communities" (see our March 30, 2012, blog post for additional background information).

The pact requires the city councils of each city to agree, but the city of Dublin refused to do so. Without Dublin, officials in Westerville, Whitehall and Canal Winchester have said they won’t participate. With these unresolved dynamics, other communities such as Upper Arlington, Reynoldsburg, Bexley and Hilliard are now reconsidering. For more, read the editorial.
