Notice of Public Hearing
All interested persons please take notice that a public hearing will be held by the Granville County Board of Commissioners pursuant to N.C.G.S. 158-7.1 on January 16, 2018 at 7:00 p.m. or shortly thereafter in the auditorium of the Granville County Expo and Convention Center, located at 4185 US Hwy 15 South, Oxford, North Carolina.
The purpose of the public hearing is to hear the views of the public on aiding and encouraging the location or expansion of industrial facilities in Granville County, specifically as follows: the expansion of a manufacturing company in Granville County to expand it existing facility. The company will invest approximately $2,350,000 and employ potentially 10 new employees. The maximum cost of the County-funded improvements will be up to $70,000 in accordance with the County’s funding policy. This project will be funded with general County operating funds. The cost to the County of the County-funded capital improvements will be offset by new tax revenues generated by the company’s capital investment in the project over a period not to exceed five years.
The public benefits to be derived from the making of these improvements include the development of industrial properties which will increase the County’s tax base to better provide for County services, and to increase employment opportunities within the County.
All interested citizens are invited and urged to attend.
