Councilman Taylor abstained from the discussion and voting on this ordinance. Brandon Smith Economic Development Corporation (EDC), provided the report for this ordinance. This project will assume 40,000 SF of the available 141,000 SF of space at the facility. The project will retain approximately 100 existing jobs with an average annual wage of approximately $100,000 per job. Total investment in the project will be around $42.7 million with around $25 million invested in the project equipment and the remaining $17.7 million invested in construction improvements and finishes at the facility. Bayer Crop Science is requesting 50% personal property tax abatement for 10 years on the project equipment, which is the standard length and term of abatement as set forth in the City’s existing Chapter 100 Policy. The City has offered a maximum $25 million in a Chapter 100 Bond issuance to fund the acquisition and installation of the project equipment at the facility. The project equipment will be owned by the City and leased back to Bayer Crop Science pursuant to a lease agreement between the City and Bayer Crop Science. The bonds will be repaid solely by Bayer Crop Science under the terms of the lease. The City’s personal property tax exemption will be for a period of ten years at 50% for all project equipment purchased with proceeds of the bonds within the first ten years following project commencement. There is a claw back agreement that is standard but still needs to be worked out for this project.
