GOLDENDALE, Wash. -- Google is planning an expansion of its data center at The Dalles and it's seeking tax breaks similar to the ones it received in 2006 when it powered up computers at the Port of The Dalles.
KYYT reports it would be a 15-year tax savings on a new building and contents.
Google says it will invest at least $200 million and add a minimum of 10 jobs. It would pay an initial fee of $1.2 million.
Once the building is on the tax rolls, Google would pay $800,000 a year for 15 years to the city, county and local school district.
The Dalles City Council will take public comment and vote on the deal at Monday's meeting. Wasco County commissioners plan a similar meeting Tuesday.
