Mr. D’Ambrosio explained that all three items relate to the WPCC. At this time Willoughby had not approved the items and as we usually approve expenditures after Willoughby has done so these items will be placed on First Reading.
Mr. Klammer added that the legislation could be placed on the May 5th agendas as proposed legislation instead of reading them tonight and placing them on First Reading.
There were no further questions or comments.
There was no Legislation Pending.
Amended Municipal Incentive Grant Agreement: Presrite Corporation
Mr. Slocum explained that in 2012 the City granted Presrite Corporation a tax incentive grant with the stipulation that the payroll level of $3,500,000 must be met. In 2013 the Council approved an amended grant agreement because Presrite failed to meet the stipulated payroll level. This year Presrite’s payroll had increased to $3,423,175.21. In an effort to keep a growing company in the City and be supportive the Administration recommends approval of an amendment to the grant agreement as the company only fell $7,000 short of its goal for 2014. Mayor Morley added that the company is very appreciative of the City’s support.
There were no further questions or comments. This item will be placed on the May 5th Council meeting agendas.
The meeting was adjourned at 7:07 p.m.
