US Tower presents to City Council

Sarah Steele, far left, an attorney with Gilmore Bell in Wichita, attended the Lincoln City Council meeting at the EMS building Monday evening to provide information regarding Industrial Revenue Bonds. Travis Suelter, Vice President with US Tower, outlined a four-phase expansion they hope to begin later this year. The additions include fabrication/machining, assembly, office expansions and an indoor testing facility. Suelter said the expansion could bring approximately 25 new jobs to Lincoln, and US Tower requests the City Council’s approval for Industrial Revenue Bonds, as well electrical and water infrastructure improvements. Steele explained the Industrial Revenue Bonds could help US Tower with sales tax exemptions on equipment purchases, and could also include up to a 10-year 100 percent property tax abatement on the expansions.
