WHEREAS, the Dow Chemical Company Industrial Development District No. 2 (Ashman Street Area) was established by resolution of the Midland City Council on July 25, 1988; and

WHEREAS, Caltech Industries, Inc. made an application dated March 30, 2006, which was received by the City Clerk on March 31, 2006,  for an Industrial Facilities Exemption Certificate relating to approval of a new facility within said District; and

WHEREAS, the application for the certificate is for approval of a new facility with the total project cost of $96,098.00 which is entirely for new personal property with the same being located within the Dow Chemical Company Industrial Development District No. 2 (Ashman Street Area) to allow Caltech Industries, Inc. to purchase new personal property to furnish and equip 4,704 square feet of leased office and lab space located at the MITECH+ Opportunity Center, and is expected to retain fifteen existing jobs and create five new jobs within two years of project completion; and

WHEREAS, the City Council, by written notice, afforded the applicant, the City Assessor, and representatives of each affected taxing unit an opportunity for a hearing on April 24, 2006, as required by Public Act 198 of Public Acts of the State of Michigan of 1974, as amended, and has given due consideration to all information presented; and

WHEREAS, the application appears to comply with the requirements set forth in Section 9 of said statute, as amended, in that the proposed facility is located within an industrial development district and/or plant rehabilitation district that was duly established within the City of Midland with the City of Midland being eligible under said statute to establish such a district and with the district having been established upon a request before the commencement of the restoration, replacement or construction of the facility described herein; that the commencement of this project did not occur earlier than six months before the filing of the application for the industrial facilities exemption certificate, that the application relates to a construction, restoration or replacement program that when completed constitutes a new or replacement facility within the meaning of said statute and is situated within a previously established industrial development district and/or plant rehabilitation district that was established in the City of Midland which was itself eligible under the statute to establish the district; that completion of the facility is calculated to, and will at the time of the issuance of the certificate, have the reasonable likelihood to create employment, retain employment, prevent a loss of employment  or produce energy in the community; now therefore

RESOLVED, that the City Council of the City of Midland finds and determines that the granting of the industrial facilities exemption certificate requested by Caltech Industries, Inc., considered together with the aggregate amount of industrial facilities exemption certificates previously granted and currently in force, shall not have the effect of substantially impeding the operation of the City of Midland or impairing the financial soundness of any other taxing unit which levies an ad valorem property tax in the City of Midland; and

RESOLVED FURTHER, that said application for an Industrial Facilities Exemption certificate from Caltech Industries, Inc., for a new facility approval within the Industrial Development District be and the same is hereby approved for a period of 12 years with an ending date of December 30, 2018; and

RESOLVED FURTHER, that the Mayor and City Clerk are authorized to execute the Public Act 198 Agreement submitted between the City and Caltech Industries, Inc., pursuant to P.A. 334 of Public Acts of the State of Michigan of 1993.  (Motion ADOPTED.)
