Emporia Commissioners Approve $4 Million Warehouse Expansion

EMPORIA, Kan. (AP) — A city commission in east-central Kansas has approved an incentive compliance agreement on a $4 million warehouse expansion for a food products supplier. The Emporia Gazette reports that Emporia City Commission approved the agreement for the Cargill warehouse Wednesday. The decision comes after a recommendation from Kent Heermann, president of the Regional Development Association of East Central Kansas. The 50,500-square-foot warehouse will be on nearly 6 acres of land owned by Emporia Enterprises. The facility also includes a 10-year tax abatement. Cargill has invested more than $5 million worth of equipment and upgrades over the last several years. Heermann says the project would bring at least $330,000 in additional payroll to Emporia. Vice Mayor Jon Geitz says the expansion has been in the works for at least 10 years.
