Fort Lauderdale may court two growing companies
Fort Lauderdale city commissioners on Tuesday will consider offering financial incentives to encourage two unidentified companies to expand in the city.
The commissioners will consider a proposal to pay $36,000 in city funds over a six-year period to induce a health care staffing company to relocate its home office to Fort Lauderale and create 60 jobs paying an average of $52,928 year.
The recruitment effort is code-named “Project Washington.” The city’s $36,000 offer would be combined with $144,000 in state incentives, making the total offer $180,000.
The commissioners also will consider offering $9,000 plus $36,000 of state incentives to a software company for establishing a regional headquarters in Fort Lauderdale and creating 15 jobs that pay an average of $52,938. The software-company recruitment effort is code-named “Project Delta.” [Sun-Sentinel] – Mike Seemuth
