Emily Glass, former mayor of Sulphur Springs and our commentator on events in the city, says the Sulphur Springs City Council will consider approval of a reinvestment zone program Tuesday night (Jan. 4) that will allow the relocation of the headquarters for the D6 plastics company from Oregon to Sulphur Springs. The $21 million investment includes a $1.4 million Texas Enterprise zone grant. More than 200 new jobs would likely be created through the tax incentive program. The existing facility would be expanded by 300,000 square feet. Also, Emily says the city has applied for a grant of from $500,000 t0 $5 million for the new seniors activities center, which has been delayed because of higher-than-expected construction costs.
