The Jefferson County Board of Legislators has scheduled a meeting Tuesday to vote on a tax break for a company that wants to develop a housing project on County Route 202 in the town of Watertown.
The board will meet at 7 p.m. at the Historic Courthouse on Arsenal Street.
A payment-in-lieu-of-taxes agreement for Morgan Managements 394-unit complex has already been approved by the town of Watertown and also needs the approval of the Watertown City School District. The agreement would reduce the amount of property taxes that the company would pay over 10 years.
The Watertown area faces a housing shortage as more troops from the 10th Mountain Division return from the war in Afghanistan.
