LAWN CARE COMPANY EXPANSION
The board also approved a tax abatement for Brinly-Hardy Co., which manufactures and sells lawn care equipment, that will allow the 175-year-old Jeffersonville company to expand its services with 44 new jobs.
The abatement is for 10 years for real property and five years for personal property.
Jeffersonville Mayor Mike Moore, one of the redevelopment commission members, said not all cities are as lucky as Jeffersonville when it comes to bringing in new businesses or expanding existing ones.
“Two significant things happened here today,” Moore said. “I hope we never take these things for granted ... It’s good to be the community that everybody’s looking to and wanting to come to Jeff.”
The business is located at 3230 Industrial Parkway, just off Interstate 65 near Hamburg Pike. Visit brinly.com for more information.
