COLUMBIA CITY â€” Whitley Countyâ€™s council approved a tax abatement for proposed improvements Tuesday.
PDQ Workholding, LLC was granted a 10-year deduction for the personal property improvements. The resolution passed 7-0.
County Councilman Bill Overdeer said he was happy with what PDQ has done so far.
â€śThe redevelopment commission unanimously approved the 10-year abatement and I would move the council approve this,â€ť he said. â€ś(PDQ has) been pretty successful in the past three years. I am proud of them and all they have been able to do and are glad to have them here.â€ť
PDQ opened for business in 2010 in Gateway Industrial Park. After just 3 years, the company is proposing an investment of $2 million more in equipment and employees. Five jobs are expected to be added to go with the 35 already there. â€śThe first few years are usually the roughest,â€ť said Councilman Glen LaRue. â€śThis is a nice success story.â€ť
