Sullivan and Franklin County are Taking Steps Toward Making Sullivan an Enhanced Enterprise Zone

The city of Sullivan and Franklin County are taking steps toward making Sullivan an enhanced enterprise zone. The zone will include Sullivan and surrounding communities and it is intended to create jobs and attract businesses. The plan is to provide property tax abatement for any business that hires two full time employees and covers at least 51% of their health insurance and make a $100,000 investment to either build a new facility or expand an existing structure. If these criteria are met, property taxes will be reduced 50% for ten years.

Early Tuesday morning, U.S. fighter jets, armed Predator and Reaper drones, and Navy ships launched airstrike attacks against ISIS, deep within Syria. While it is ironic that it was about a year ago at this time that President Obama was seriously considering strikes against Syrian leader Bashir al-Assad, sometimes threats emerge even greater than the last.
