Subject: [CPEO-BIF] Slocomb National Bank, Dothan, Alabama

City officials approved the state's first Brownfield redevelopment site earlier this week for Slocomb National Bank, which is building a branch at the site of an old gas station at Ross Clark Circle and West Main Street.

Next Tuesday, Houston County commissioners will vote on granting the same 20-year ad valorem and sales tax abatement to the bank under the Brownfield Development Tax Abatement Act of 2004.

When the redevelopment or reuse of a property may be complicated by the presence of hazardous substances, pollutants or contaminant, it is considered a brownfield. The tax abatement allows an abatement on local sales taxes, except for the educational portion, and ad valorem taxes, except for the educational portion.
