Greenwood County Council on Tuesday unanimously approved the third reading of an ordinance extending a fee-in-lieu-of-tax agreement to FujiFilm for the next 30 years.
FujiFilm will be making a capital investment $50 million over the next 10 years. The investment does not include new jobs at the manufacturing facility.

In exchange for the exemption, FujiFilm will pay 6 percent of the fair market value of the portion of the project placed into service annually.
