Mohave County supervisors voted 4-1 March 6 in support of a development agreement that will help bring a major food redistribution facility to the region. Terms of the agreement require the county to pay $500,000 of a $1.6-million incentive package for Dot Foods to locate in Bullhead City.
Supervisor Buster Johnson dissented in the vote, explaining that he welcomes Dot Foods but cannot support use of taxpayer dollars in that fashion.
Supervisor Steve Moss countered that the money is well spent and will net the county a much greater return over time. The company must meet hiring and salary benchmarks to earn what’s promised in the incentive package that includes contributions from the state and from Bullhead City.
