Ludington to consider Brill tax abatement

March 24, 2014

UPDATED at 6:53 p.m.: The request passed unanimously by city council.

LUDINGTON — A public hearing will be held tonight to hear input on a request from Brill Company for a tax abatement. The hearing will take place during the regular city council meeting, which begins at 6:30 p.m.

Brill has purchased a new panel saw and a new edge banding machine at a cost of $202,450. It is requesting a 50% tax abatement on the new equipment for six years.

The Brill Company, located at the corner of South James Street and Dowland Street, manufactures wood furniture.

“The new panel saw is an expansion of capabilities due to faster processing and capable of handling larger materials for increased materials yields,” David Field, president of Brill Company, wrote in his request for the abatement. “The new edge banner is an expansion of product lines into the laminated panels. Both of these investments will increase our cost effectiveness while letting us compete in new product offerings.”

City Council is expected to take action on the request following the public hearing.
