the company may or may not stay in Clark County, depending on whether or not the abatement is approved.
County Council Attorney Scott Lewis said in order to grant the abatement the council must first designate the area as an Economic Revitalization Area.
The council questioned whether or not to designate the Economic Revitalization Area to Sellersburg Heating and Air Conditioning’s lot or to the entire 68-acre development.
Despite the uncertainty, the council moved forward with the abatement process by introducing the resolution. Approval of the abatement, including its length, will still have to go through several steps before the council makes its official vote.
The council retained Barbara Hollis as the president of the county council and Lenfert as the council’s vice president.
