County likely to OK fee-in-lieu for $20 million industrial expansion

Cherokee County Council is expected to approve on final reading today financial incentives for an existing company that has plans to expand.

The financial incentives will take the form of a fee-in-lieu for a company known as “Project Fourteen.”

The company used the code name to keep its plans a secret. However, sources have identified the company as Brown Packing Company in Gaffney.

According to sources, the expansion could be as much as a $20 million investment. There is no word if the expansion will create more jobs.

Interestingly, the project will be on the agenda at the Gaffney City Council, which is expected to give final reading to an ordinance to include the company in a joint county industrial park.
