Council will act on Enterprise Zone request from Diamond Manufacturing

Bluffton council will act on Monday on a proposed enterprise zone designation for Diamond Manufacturing of Bluffton.

The business is located at 505 E. Jefferson St., with offices at 9660 Mayberry Road, Bluffton. The zone grants the property owner tax exemption for the construction of an addition to the business.

According to the ordinance council will act upon, Diamond is enlarging and enhancing its fabrication and welding business. The addition includes 30,000 square feet and is under construction on the north side of the Diamond building.

In anticipation of Bluffton council okaying the enterprise zone, the Allen County Commissioners must then act on it.

This legislation is one of several actions council will consider on Monday. This meeting's agenda is unusually heavy. Icon viewers may review the entire agenda in the council packet listed as an attachment to this story.

As a point of interest, seven 40-yard dumpsters will filled to the brim during spring clean up.
