Orange County Commissioners Holding Public Hearing on Economic Development Incentives

(WCHL/Chapelboro, 9/10/19) Orange County is considering a performance-based economic package to incentivize Medline building on the site. Medline say it expects to create 250 new jobs in its first five years and could reach 600 jobs in its first 10. If the new factory meets yearly benchmarks of jobs created, the company would receive more than $1.8 million in tax incentives over the course of five years. The company is also in line for $1.725 million from the state and $803,000 from Mebane in incentives.
