Council discusses AVI co-legisaltion, N.J. discusses fracking waste

    Welcome to a new week, Feeders.

    We’ll start with an announcement from Mayor Michael Nutter and Jay-Z about a Labor Day weekend concert in Philly. Peter Crimmins will have those details.
    Dave Davies is City Council-bound to hear about co-legislation for the city’s actual value initiative to adjust property taxes and support the school district.

    Emma Jacobs will check in with New Jersey as legislators weigh a fracking waste ban, while Phil Gregory looks at the state’s developments with mandatory drug courts for some offenders.

    And Lizz Fiedler will have a story from Chester on the city’s new money-making strategies.
