The Wichita city council and the Sedgwick County Commission will have discussions this week on an economic incentive grant for a local company that plans to double its workforce.
NetApp, which provides data storage and management systems for a variety of businesses, recently announced plans to add 418 new workers within the next 5 years. The company currently has 439 workers, and it has been in operation in Wichita for about 15 months.
Under an agreement for the incentive grant, the city and county would each provide up to $418,000, for a total of $836,000. That would be $312 for each new worker.
The company also plans to invest over $85 million in its facility near 37th Street North and Rock Road.
The city council will consider the agreement on Tuesday, and the county commission will talk about it at their regular meeting on Wednesday.
