I heard a company was willing to purchase Northwest Pipe but the City would not issue tax credits to seal the deal; however, they had no problem issuing tax credits to the new hotel coming to town. Is this true?
No, this is NOT true. Here’s the low down: To our knowledge, Northwest Pipe has not been approached with an offer for purchase. Neither a representative from Northwest Pipe nor a potential buyer for Northwest Pipe has approached the City requesting any information on incentives available to a potential business. We would be happy to sit down with any potential buyer and/or Northwest Pipe to discuss any business development that could transpire on that property, but to date, we have not been contacted.
