UPDATED INFORMATION: New information released by a public relations firm working with Haier America cements the theory its proposed expansion is “Project Picture.” Kershaw County Council used Project Picture as a code name when it passed a recent resolution and first reading of an ordinance concerning a fee in lieu of taxes (FILOT) deal. FILOT agreements are a common practice used to encourage industries to open or expand in the county.
