Judge ratifies tax relief agreement for Kroger Marketplace
Placeholder Image
A judge has ratified an agreement between the local development authority and Kroger that will give the company some tax relief and guarantees the grocer will build a new flagship Marketplace store on Ga. 400 in Dawson County. Northeastern Judicial Juvenile Court Judge Allison Toller validated the agreement Tuesday morning, following a brief presentation by Attorney Kevin Brown, who represents the Development Authority of Dawson County. The authority has agreed to provide private bonds for title in the amount of $23 million at Kroger's request, which means the actual property will be owned by the authority and exempt from property taxes.
