MUNCIE, Ind. (AP) - A company is scheduled to pay more than $800,000 to a central Indiana county for failing to create jobs building wind turbine parts.

The Star Press reports (https://tspne.ws/2hp1rX4 ) that the payment from Brevini follows a $375,000 payment to Delaware County in 2015.

Brad Bookout, the county’s economic development officer, says that the exact amount of the payment, and whether it will be the last one paid, will be determined after Brevini reports its latest employment and capital investment numbers to the county.

Brevini planned to create 450 jobs when plans for its Muncie factory were announced in 2008, but with the recession and declining growth in the wind power industry, the company never employed more than about 60. The county spent millions to extend a rail line to the site.
