Lee county is playing a waiting game to hear from a Fortune 500 company that may move its corporate headquarters here. Economic Development officials had hoped to hear something Monday, but no word came. Lee is pledging 4-million dollars as incentive mony to attract the HQ with 750 employees.
"I still have not heard anything," said Jim Moore, director of econ. development, about 5p.m. on Monday.
"I believe the company may be spending time with its employees, making sure they hear the news first, before anyone else, about any move of the headquarters," added Moore.
The state of Florida also is pleding incentive money for the company to come here and build a huge HQ building in south Lee county.
