The Iowa Economic Development Authority Board approved assistance for two projects Friday, including a $600 million expansion of Google’s data center in Council Bluffs, the tech company’s largest. According to a news release, the city of Council Bluffs requested that the board authorize a local property tax exemption through the High Quality Jobs program. The board on Friday approved a $16.6 million local property tax break over 20 years, the Des Moines Register reported. The project will result in $600 million in new capital investment and create 31 jobs at a qualifying wage of $28.73 per hour. View a spreadsheet detailing both awards at this link.
