Council looks to help expanding businesses

By CHRIS AGEE | cagee@mineralwellsindex.com

City council members voted unanimously to approve an ordinance and resolution nominating Perry Equipment Corporation as a Texas Enterprise Zone Program participant.

Howerton explained the company has been working with city staff and the Industrial Foundation to establish a new facility near its existing location.

That project will likely begin within 30 to 60 days, he noted, adding the new facility is expected to create at least 35 new jobs.

When announcing their plan to go ahead with the project, he said company officials requested it be nominated as an Enterprise Zone project, which could result in state sales tax incentives for Perry Equipment totaling $400,000 over five years.
