Subject: [CPEO-BIF] SeverStal Steel, Dearborn, Michigan
Council action paves way for $1.6 billion SeverStal investment

DEARBORN - SeverStal Steel, which has its North American headquarters in Dearborn, is set to invest about $1.6 billion in the Ford Rouge plant where it manufactures steel for use in Ford Motor Co. vehicles. Dearborn City Council members Monday night unanimously approved a Brownfield Reimbursement Agreement among the city of Dearborn, the Brownfield Redevelopment Authority and SeverStal.

The agreement means that the company would be able to recapture a portion of its investment - around $25 million - over 20 years, according to Council President Tom Tafelski. Tafelski also said the investment will retain jobs, along with bringing in about 75 new positions.


To help in the process, the city of Dearborn, in partnership with the state of Michigan and the Michigan Economic Development Corp. (MEDC), prepared a Brownfield Redevelopment grant — approved Monday night — that gives SeverStal millions of dollars in tax credits to clean up environmentally contaminated sites and build new facilities, O'Reilly said.
