It is proposed that the taxpayers of the City of Asheville give $67,000 to Plasticard-Locktech International. The drop in the bucket (of questionable if-but standing) will be used to assist with a $4.6 million expansion of the company and the creation of 42 jobs paying on average $12.50/hour. As you’ve heard a million times, no money is being given. Platicard-Locktech will realize savings through a 75% property tax discount. If you think the end results are equivalent, consider the government shell game in which a bean is hidden under one of three cups. You cannot remove the bean from Cup 1 to put it under Cup 2, without completely obliterating it and spontaneously generating a new one. Got it?
