(DODGE CITY, Kan.) — A company in Ford County wants a tax break in order to expand.
Ellis James, Inc., will ask the Ford County Commission for a 10-year, prorated tax abatement for the project. The company plans to manufacture counter top surfaces. The company would go in next to the current Kitchens, Inc., building. The tax break would pay for a new showroom and fabrication shop.
Under the expansion plan, Ellis James says it will hire five people in the first year and five more people over the next four years. According to the Ford County clerk's office the tax breaks carry a price tag of $354,463.
The commission will host a public hearing on the request at 4:45 p.m. Monday. It will be located in the commission chamber at the Ford County Government Center.
