Notice of Public Hearing

Jim Wells County Reinvestment Zone Number One

The Jim Wells County Commissioners' Court will conduct a public hearing at its next regularly scheduled meeting as follow:

  • A Public Hearing pursuant to Tex. Tax Code 312.201(d), concerning the possible creation of Jim Wells County Reinvestment Zone Number One for the purpose of authorizing the Commissioners' Court to grant a possible tax abatement agreement within such reinvestment zone in Jim Wells County, Texas; and,
  • The possible adoption of a Tax Abatement Agreement, pursuant to Chapter 312 of the Texas Government Code, with Talitha Energy Project, LLC, a limited liability company.

 

In determining whether to designate the Reinvestment Zone, the Commissioners' Court will, in accordance with the Guidelines and Criteria, consider whether such designation would contribute to the retention or expansion of primary employment or would attract major investment in the Zone that would benefit the land to be included in the Zone and would contribute to the economic development of the County.  Consideration of a Tax Abatement Agreement will be undertaken in accordance with the County's adopted Guidelines and Criteria.

The public hearing will take place beginning at 10:00 a.m. on the 11th day of July 2022, in the County Courtroom of the Jim Wells County Courthouse, located at 200 N Almond, Alice, Texas, 78332.  All interested persons may appear and present testimony regarding the designation of the Reinvestment Zone.  Copies of the County's adopted Guidelines and Criteria, and the proposed Resolution creating Jim Wells County Reinvestment Zone Number One, and the draft Tax Abatement Agreement are available for public viewing at the County Judge's office or the County Clerk's office in the Jim Wells County Courthouse during normal business hours.

If further information is needed, please contact County Judge Juan Rodriguez, Jr, Jim Wells County Courthouse, (361) 668-5706 Ext 1.
