“We passed first reading on Monday night for a fee-in-lieu-of-taxes (FILOT), and we will have second reading in October,” said Clarendon County Council Chairman Dwight Stewart. “We think it’s a good fit for the county, and once we can reveal it, we believe it will be some exciting news for Clarendon County.”
Stewart said the exact amount of the tax incentive was not disclosed. A FILOT allows a company to pay a fee in lieu of annual property taxes, providing an incentive for industries to come to our county.
