Pulaski County Council Creates Economic Revitalization Area

Pulaski County CourthouseThe Pulaski County Council has approved a resolution that would make a local business eligible for a tax abatement.

R&S Welding and Fabricating isn’t currently asking for a tax abatement, but Pulaski County Community Development Commission Executive Director Nathan Origer says the resolution would make it easier for the company to expand in the future. It designates the company’s four-acre site as an economic revitalization area. That means if and when the time comes for expansion, the area will already be eligible to receive tax abatements, making the process quicker. The council held a hearing on the resolution, but there were no comments from the public.

During Monday’s meeting, the council also voted to adopt the 2016 budget and salary ordinances.
