Giant Foods Withdraws LERTA Request

Ahold USA recently withdrew their request for a Local Economic Revitalization Tax Abatement (LERTA) for their new meat packing facility in Lower Allen Township, Cumberland County.    Local residents had been critical of the request since construction on the facility had started prior to the initial request for tax abatement.  Construction on the plant is moving forward and when completed in early 2013 the plant will  employ 400 people initially and is expected to  grow to around 850 employees over the next three years.
