      Florence County working to lure company that could bring jobs

      Florence County Council is expected to pass an inducement resolution providing for a fee in lieu of tax agreement between Florence County and a company it's referring to as Project R.

      Florence County Administrator Rusty Smith says they can't release the company's name, but will say it could bring a substantial number of jobs to the county.

      Smith says they've been working to get this company to locate in Florence County for several months and they're ready to move to the next phase by passing a resolution.

      Council will discuss the Project R resolution during its regular scheduled meeting Thursday morning.
