EUGENE, Ore. – The Lane County Board of Commissioners voted 4-1 to keep a local business in the area, Tuesday.
The Community and Economic Development team asked the board to consider Lane Metro Partnership‘s $100,000 incentive request for the Springfield-based company, APEL Excursions. The company’s moving to Coburg and is looking to purchase an $8 million piece of equipment, the money will help that.
Many on the board said it would be a good way to keep businesses in the area.
“We need to have a more transparent process of what’s the corporation, who are the people that are actually going to benefit from this,” said Pete Sorenson, Lane County Commissioner.
It’s not clear when the money will be doled out, but the county says it won’t happen right away.
