Tax Abatement Requests to be Considered by Pulaski County Council Tonight

Public hearings over three potential tax abatements will be held during tonight’s Pulaski County Council meeting. Council members have recently taken steps to make the JSI Steel and IBC Thermoplastics properties eligible for abatements, along with a site near U.S. 421 and County Road 200 South that’s being considered for a potential value-added agriculture business.

Also during tonight’s meeting, council members will consider how to pay $27,000 in architect fees, related to the county’s recent facilities proposal. Among other things, it proposed replacing the existing courthouse with an addition to the Justice Center.

The county council will also consider wage and salary revisions, approve transfers to close out 2018, and reorganize for 2019 tonight. Council members will hear from Circuit Court Judge Mary Welker, Prosecutor Dan Murphy, and Sheriff Jeff Richwine.

Tonight’s Pulaski County Council meeting starts at 7:00 EST in the Pulaski County Courthouse.
