CEDAR FALLS, Iowa (AP) - The City Council has approved a tax break for John Deere’s $27.8 million expansion project in Cedar Falls.

The Waterloo-Cedar Falls Courier says (https://bit.ly/1zmm8X0 ) the five-year property tax abatement was approved at Monday night’s meeting, following a public hearing.

Director of Developmental Services Ron Gaines says the city issued a building permit on June 24 for an addition that is expected to have a valuation of about $9.5 million.

John Deere’s Chris Meyers says the expansion will provide nearly 62,000 square feet of additional space and improvements to the existing engineering center’s infrastructure.
