Columbia City Council to discuss IBM project
Monday, May 24, 2010 | 10:54 a.m. CDT
COLUMBIA — The Columbia City Council has called a special meeting Monday night to discuss an IBM project the company says would create up to 800 jobs.
The global technology company announced plans last week to open a technology service delivery center later this year in a Columbia office park.
The state is offering IBM more than $28 million in state tax incentives. And the city has agreed to spend more than $3 million to buy a vacant building at 2810 LeMone Industrial
Blvd. that IBM would rent for $1 a year.
Monday night's council meeting will include a public comment period for the IBM project.
