The Culver City Council acted upon a request to declare an area as an economic revitalization area.
The owner of LK Wood Products and Marshall County Economic Development Corporation Director Jerry Chavez gave the council members an idea about an expansion project at the facility on Mill Street. The company is seeking a tax abatement to invest millions of dollars in expanding the technology at the plant. More jobs will be created as a result of the upgrade in equipment.
Employees at the facility create a variety of wood products, including cabinets, doors, furniture accessories and hardware.
The council approved the request to declare the area as an economic revitalization area, which is the first of two steps in the process. A public hearing on the matter will be held at the council’s next meeting to gather opinions on the plans.
