Lawmakers Okay Tax Incentives for Cheese Company
Wisconsin Ag Connection - 01/19/2017
One of the first items of business approved during the new legislative session in Madison this year will benefit a Sheboygan County cheese company.
On Tuesday, the State Senate passed a bill that creates a tax incremental district to help subsidize construction of a new food plant for Masters Gallery Foods in Oostburg.
The $30 million project will help the company package and distribute cheese, and would also add about 120 new jobs over the next three years.
The measure will now go to the Assembly for consideration.
