Industrial tax break vote Tuesday

Posted June 20, 2005

Bainbridge- Voters in Bainbridge will weigh in on a tax break for industries on Tuesday.

     They will be voting on what's known as the "Freeport Break." It gives new and existing industries relief on their property and inventory taxes. No money would come out of the taxpayer's pockets. Instead, the city would not receive as much as it currently does from the industries.

     The tax break would cost Bainbridge about $15,000 a year. Most cities and counties in Georgia with industries already use the break.
