Orangeburg County Council is scheduled to discuss economic development incentives for Husqvarna when it gathers Monday. Council meets at 5:30 p.m. in council chambers.
The company announced in May it was shutting down a Nebraska plant and moving production to Orangebug. Husqvarna is already Orangeburg County's largest employer, with an average of about 1,500 employees making riding lawn tractors, tillers and snow throwers.
Council will consider giving first reading approval to two ordinances related to providing fee-in-lieu of taxes incentives for the company.
Council is also scheduled to:
- Consider giving first reading to an ordinance approving borrowing by Three Rivers Solid Waste Authority, which handles solid waste for several counties.
- Receive a report on the Lake Marion Regional Water Agency from George Aull of Engineering Resources Corporation.
- Hear from Public Works Committee Chairman Johnny Ravenell.
- Consider an access road inclusion request for Change Lane.
- Make an appointment to the Regional Medical Center board of trustees.
