Three governing bodies are expected to vote on a final Memorandum of Understanding today as the last major hurdle to bring Project Falcon to Dickson County. Local officials announced April 1 that the unidentified Fortune 500 company had chosen Dickson as its “preferred location finalist” and in the 10 months since then there have been ongoing negotiations to donate land, get funds for infrastructure improvements, set up a tax incentive program and even cover attorneys’ fees. The MOU is reported to be the final step before the company will be ready to identify itself publicly. The Dickson County Industrial Development Board has scheduled a special meeting at noon today in the Mayor’s Conference Room at Dickson City Hall to vote on the MOU. The Dickson City Council has scheduled a special session following tonight’s 7:30 Finance and Management Committee meeting at Dickson City Hall. The Dickson County Commission’s regular monthly session is 7:00 tonight in Charlotte. While the Project Falcon MOU was not discussed at this month’s work session and is not listed on the agenda released for tonight’s meeting, Mayor Bob Rial said if the document is ready for a vote it will be presented. According to preliminary documents presented earlier this month, the MOU will include a 15-year graduated tax incentive program while Project Falcon commits to a $180 million investment in a new facility that will create 195 full-time equivalent jobs by the end of 2016 and 320 full-time salaried and direct and indirect hourly jobs by the end of 2018. Dickson County is donating 146 acres in the William D. Field-Dickson County Industrial Park, which will be turned over to the Industrial Development Board and then leased to Project Falcon for the duration of the tax-abatement agreement. An attorney representing Project Falcon has said once the MOU is approved by the appropriate local governing bodies and the company’s board of directors, he expects an official announcement could be made as early as March.
