LaGrange Co. Council Denies Abatement Request
Tuesday Jul 10, 2018 1:46pm
LaGrange, IN

By: Tim Murray


(LAGRANGE) - The LaGrange County Council did something Monday that it hardly ever does, and that's deny a request for tax abatement.

The trouble began last month when Council delayed acting on the request by Middlebury Cheese because of incomplete information. It also learned that the building permit issued to Middlebury Cheese a few years ago was for far less than the amount the company was seeking abatement on, as County Attorney Kurt Bachman explains. ...... {LISTEN}.

Bachman says they are still waiting for information from the company's attorney. ...... {LISTEN}.

Planning and Zoning Administrator Robbie Miller made a site visit to the new building since last month’s Council meeting. She says work is not finished and the company has paid a fine, but there hasn't been any follow up done by the County. After hearing that, the Council voted unanimously to deny the tax abatement.
