What? Your local paper did a story about Greg Fischer’s company – Dant Clayton – getting a fat taxpayer incentive of $1.19 million and it didn’t bother mentioning it was, you know, the mayor’s company?
Four companies were approved for state and local tax incentives Thursday based on plans to bring a total of 107 jobs to Louisville.
The Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority approved the incentives, which the companies can collect over a period of 10 years if they meet wage and hiring goals.
— Dant Clayton Corp., a manufacturer of bleachers and other sports seating, may add 72 jobs paying an average hourly wage of $23, according to state documents. The company, founded in 1979 and headquartered in Louisville, was approved for a total award of $1.19 million.
And before you complain? Yes, he’s still a part of the company.
