Ford County Grain Handling Facility Get Tax Break

KSCB News - April 21, 2011 8:10 am

A southwest Kansas agricultural
co-operative is getting a tax break to build a grain-handling plant
outside Dodge City.
The Ford County Commission has approved a 10-year, 100 percent
tax abatement for Pride Ag Resources’ $3.5 million plant. The
operation is designed to reduce the number of haulers entering
downtown Dodge City to reach Pride Ag’s elevator.
Other counties expressed
interest in attracting the grain-handling plant. But company
officials said the prospect of a tax break gave Ford County the
edge as the most attractive site for the project.
The abatement applies only to the new plant in rural Ford
County, not to its existing property within the Dodge City limits.
