Tax abatement request on trustees’ agenda

A property tax abatement request from a company wanting to expand its facility in Lake Township will be on the agenda of the township trustees’ March 5 meeting, according to Richard Welling, a trustee.

He declined to name the business but said it is located near the Toledo Executive Airport and company management is requesting the abatement for a planned 14,000-square-foot addition.

The business is not located in a Joint Economic Development District that the township and City of Toledo formed to share income tax revenues from businesses that locate there, Welling said.

The JEDD covers about 400 acres on the grounds of the Toledo Executive Airport, formerly Metcalf Field.

The airport is owned by the City of Toledo and leased to the Toledo Lucas County Port Authority.
