An Ohio company is making plans to move into the former Goodyear tire plant on Texas Highway 31.
The court will consider a tax abatement to bring a manufacturing employer to the former Goodyear plant on Texas Highway 31 West.
Hyponex Corporation, which makes Scotts Miracle Grow, will be considered for a five-year tax abatement by the court Tuesday during its 9:30 a.m. meeting and public hearing on the abatement inside the Courthouse Annex, 200 E. Ferguson St. in Tyler.
The move could create up to 40 jobs and bring between $6 million and $8 million in investment to the location.
Mark Whatley, real estate broker at Burns Commercial Properties, is handling the sale for the owners. He said the sale is being finalized.
