JeffCo commissioners to consider on Monday incentitives for water park and hotel at Ford Park
KFDM News - Jefferson County commissioners are scheduled to vote Monday on economic incentives that could pave the way for a $40-million dollar project that includes a water park and a hotel at Ford Park.
The commissioners' court will consider approving the incentives and authorizing the county judge to sign a letter of intent to offer economic development incentives to two companies.
If the projects are approved, a county official says the water park and hotel could be finished by next year.
The Beaumont city council is slated to discuss incentives on Tuesday.
