The Chairman of the Johnston County Board of Commissioners has called for a public hearing on Monday, May 1, 2017, at the 10:00 a.m. regular meeting of the Johnston County Board of Commissioners held in the Commissioners’ Meeting Room, Johnston County Courthouse, 207 E. Johnston Street, Smithfield, NC 27577. The public hearing will begin immediately following the Public Comment section held at the beginning of the meeting (10:00 a.m.), or as soon thereafter as possible.
A company intends to expand production facilities and hire a substantial number of new, permanent full-time employees to work there. The company has proposed the expansion in Johnston County in exchange for certain economic incentives in the form of annual cash grants paid from general County funds over the next five years. The County believes this project will help stimulate the local economy, result in new taxable capital investments in real and personal property, and the creation by the company of a substantial number of new, permanent jobs in the County. The Board of Commissioners will solicit public comment on the proposed incentives at the public hearing. It is the preliminary intention of the Board of Commissioners to approve the grant of these incentives to the company in exchange for the company’s commitments to (1) operate the expanded facilities, (2) create a substantial number of new, permanent full-time jobs and (3) invest in taxable business personal property additions that will return property tax revenues substantially in excess of the County’s investment. The cash grants are contingent upon, among other things, the company’s entry into a local economic development agreement with the County containing the obligations and agreements of the company and the County. All interested persons are invited to attend and present their views during this public hearing.
Jeffrey P. Carver, Chairman
