The City of Shawano and the common council approved the annexation of 46 acres of property from the town of Waukechon. The annexation of the land will be used to accommodate the new facility for Reinhart Food Service. A development agreement is yet to be reached but one option is a $3.8 million property tax rebate over 10-12 years. If the new facility is built it will be more than 100,000 square feet larger and will be able to work at about 40 percent more energy efficient that its facility now. On top of that it would have the potential to ad more than 50 jobs over the next 10 years. The Reinhart anticipates completing the project by June 2019.
