FORT MYERS, Fla. - Lee County commissioners are willing to spend $5 million to entice a pharmaceutical company to build and move to southwest Florida.
The company-- still un-named-- would build a 150,000 square foot factory in the commercial park on the north side of Southwest Florida International Airport.
The company would bring more than 200 jobs to Lee County. County leaders estimate it would generate $50 million of economic impact every year.
Commissioners should know in a few weeks whether the company will take the money to come here.
