The Finney County Commission has approved incentives to bring a Florida-based animal science technology company to relocate to the Garden City area.
Finney County authorities say TekVet Technologies Co. would
bring 60 new high-paying jobs to the area in its first year.
The Garden City Telegram reports that TekVet has been
negotiating with economic officials since late summer about
relocating its livestock health monitoring company to an industrial
site at Garden City Regional Airport. It's also considering two
other out-of-state locations.
Garden City commissioners on Tuesday unanimously approved an
incentive package that includes tax exemptions and cash grants.
The agreement includes Garden City buying two buildings, a
warehouse and office building, and allow the company to use them at
no cost for the first 10 years.
