New Ulm City Council Preview 05 Mar 13

The New Ulm City Council is scheduled to consider a development agreement with Frontier Labs this (TUE) evening that includes a tax abatement program. The tax breaks would help the laboratory set up operations in New Ulm by rebating around $4,100 in property taxes each year for up to 15 years. Frontier Labs must create 4 full-time jobs that pay at least $14 per-hour plus benefits as a requirement of the tax abatement. In other business today, the Council will consider a request from New Ulm’s roller derby team to amend the City Code to allow alcoholic beverages to be sold during its home games at the New Ulm Civic Center. The New Ulm City Council meeting begins at 5pm today at City Hall.
