Lotus Bakeries Expanding in Mebane
It looks like Lotus Bakeries in Mebane is going to do just fine without any financial incentives from Alamance County. You might remember we told you a few months ago that the company was asking for some tax breaks from the county and from the city of Mebane. The County Commissioners voted against it, but the city of Mebane agreed, using a grant from what is called the North Carolina Rural Infrastructure Authority worth about 500 thousand dollars. Well Lotus says it will still expand, and offer about 90 new jobs as well. They say the jobs will pay an average of 44 thousand a year and will add about 4 Million dollars a year to the tax base in Alamance County.
