Regular readers of CSW know about KC-MO's "secrets" regarding a proposed 1000 room convention hotel that will absolutely need heavy taxpayer-provided corporate welfare.
Now- according to a "breaking news" story this morning in the LEE'S SUMMIT (MO) JOURNAL- 2 companies possibly coming to Lee's Summit have had the carrot of "incentives" dangled before them.
According to the LSJ story- the name of one of the companies is being kept from the very taxpayers financing their "incentive."
The other company whose name is not being kept secret- "Exergonix-" stands to receive "an incentive package of between $10.9 million and $11.5 million in tax abatement (also known at CSW and the rest of the Real World as "taxpayer welfare for corporations")."
Lee's Summit residents- hold tight to your wallets....
