LAGRANGE – A meeting of the minds between Exo-S, it's insurance company, and LaGrange County officials on a fire suppression system for its new plant is proving difficult.

Members of the LaGrange County Council and Commissioners met Monday hoping to vote on a proposed 250-thousand gallon water tower. But instead they learned that the insurance company is raising concerns about relying on a publicly-controlled water source for fire suppression.

Some county officials were ready to move ahead with the water tower, saying it's needed in the long run for continued development and for Lima-Brighton Elementary School.

But others were less enthusiastic about an estimated $1.3 million dollar project that in the end might not meet the company's needs.

The joint boards voted to table the issue until more information is available.

County Council held a public hearing on a request for more than $3.2 million dollars in tax abatement by Exo-S. Because the company is already moving equipment into the facility on State Road 9 the council voted to waive its non-compliance. It tabled further action on the request until the signed abatement agreement is received.
