Donnelly asks to amend 2005 JOBZ agreement

Email News Alerts

Donnelly Custom Manufacturing in Alexandria was doing extremely well six years ago - so well that it decided to expand.

It asked for, and received, state and local tax exemptions under the Minnesota Job Opportunity Building Zones (JOBZ) program to help pay for its 19,500-square-foot expansion.


It easily exceeded the JOBZ requirements of adding and retaining at least eight new jobs every year. In fact, it added and retained more than 20 new jobs in 2006, 2007 and 2008.
