FILOT, impact fee ordinance on county council agenda
Placeholder Image
Kershaw County Council will consider third and final reading of a Fee In Lieu of Taxes (FILOT) agreement between Kershaw County and Suominen, as well as third and final reading of a rezoning request and second reading of an amendment to the ordinance addressing impact and sewer tap fees during its meeting tonight. The county has been ironing out the details of a FILOT with Suominen, operating as Bethune Nonwovens. The company announced an expansion in 2016; it is agreeing to invest at least $55 million in a new expansion intended to create at least 29 new full-time jobs at its Bethune plant in exchange for the FILOT agreement.
