Brazeway tax abatement request heading to City Council

A tax abatement request by Brazeway will be going to the Shelbyville City Council after the tax abatement committee gave a favorable recommendation Tuesday morning.

Citing how the company has contributed to the community by taking care of its employees, the City of Shelbyville’s tax abatement committee gave a favorable recommendation for a tax abatement for Brazeway during Tuesday morning’s meeting.

The company, which makes coiling components that go into refrigeration, had two reasons why it was requesting the abatement, said Steve Schrumpf, a lawyer representing Brazeway.
