MORRIS – The Morris City Council will hold a public hearing to consider a proposal for tax abatement for a company that wants to develop property at the corner of Highway 28 and Highway 9 in Morris.


Without tax abatement for Dripps Automotive from the city, Stevens County and the Morris Area School District, an entire planned development and highway improvement in that area are at risk, City Manager Blaine Hill said.
