RICHMOND, Ind. — Richmond Common Council approved a 10-year, 95% tax abatement Monday on new production equipment for Hill’s Pet Nutrition.

The tax abatement had been presented at council’s Nov. 1 meeting and referred to its tax abatement committee. Richmond Councilor Doug Goss said the committee met with Hill’s last week and recommended approval. 

Richmond Council President Larry Parker said he was impressed during the visit to Hill’s plant at 2325 Union Pike.

“We certainly thank you for staying in Richmond and expanding,” said Parker, adding he hopes Hill’s will return and ask for more tax relief when further expanding in Richmond.
