Council hears taxation request



City officials will hear good economic news tonight when one of the area’s largest local employers lays out its plans for expansion.

Kremers Urban Pharmaceuticals is on the agenda for today’s common council meeting, requesting tax abatement on real estate improvements and the purchase of new equipment for its operations in Freeman Field Industrial Park on the city’s southwest side.

The meeting will begin at 7 p.m. at City Hall and is open to the public.

The company, which produces a variety of specialty generic medications, will invest nearly $22 million to convert existing warehouse space for manufacturing its products.
