Young County approves improvement zone, tax abatement for proposed wind farm

Apex Clean Energy Inc. cleared a hurdle in its attempt to build a wind farm in Young County Monday at a regular scheduled Young County Commissioners Court meeting at the Young County Courthouse. In two votes, the commissioners unanimously voted to approve a request from Apex for a reinvestment zone and the acceptance of an application for a tax abatement agreement with the county.

The county hosted a public hearing at 10 a.m. Monday to hear from both supporters and opponents of the measure. Bob Bass of Allison, Bass & Magee, LLP, who has represented the county in negotiations with Apex opened the hearing.

“The purpose of the reinvestment zone is to encourage development within that zone that would have the benefit of additional jobs, economic development and recruiting new industry to the county,” Bass said.

For the rest of the story, see the April 28 edition of The Graham Leader.
