Trustees granted FedEx a 15-year tax abatement Wednesday as the company works on a $42 million expansion of its Perrysburg Township facility.
The company will receive a 100-percent tax abatement for the planned expansion in the Ampoint Industrial Park. The abatement was approved 2-0 by trustees Gary Britten and Craig LaHote, with Bob Mack abstaining.
The project will collectively add 22 full-time jobs and another 145 part-time positions, said Jack Hilbert of Shumaker, Loop & Kendrick, the legal firm representing FedEx, which opened the $90 million distribution center in 2009.
Hilbert added that FedEx's current $13.7 million payroll will be increased by a total of more than $1.8 million after the 93,500-square-foot expansion.
Wade Gottschalk, executive director of Wood County Economic Development, spoke in support of the tax plan, adding that the school already has agreements to pay Rossford schools and Penta Career Center.

A Cygnet man was sentenced to two years in prison Tuesday after pleading guilty in connection to sending a threatening letter to North Baltimore schools last fall.
Dwight Bower, 57, appeared before Judge Robert Pollex.
He had reportedly sent "an anonymous letter with a non-specific threat" received by North Baltimore schools on Oct. 3, 2013. A forensic examination of the letter led authorities to Bower later that month, and he was arrested without incident.
There was heightened police presence at the village schools following the incident, but schools were not closed and ran as scheduled. The district has security systems in place, as well as a school resource officer.
Bower pleaded guilty in April to a single count of inducing panic, a second-degree felony.

The Bowling Green Bobcat Boosters plan to continue to support student athletes as it deals with the theft charges against a former club treasurer.
Booster President Van Spears said Tuesday that changes are being made to provide better checks and balances in the future, but would not specify what changes those would be.
He also would not provide the boosters' current fund balance, saying that that amount is unclear until the case again Eric Whitson is final and the group knew what funds they would be allowed to spend.
Whitson was arrested July 2 after it became apparent that he improperly issued at least two checks totaling $80,000 from the Perrysburg Schools to the Bowling Green boosters.

Wood County's cities, businesses and citizens were the stars of promotional footage shot across the region Tuesday.
The timing is right for a new county video, and so is the price, as a New York company agreed to produce an advertising-driven project for free.
The old video was a little too heavy on government with not enough of a focus on what makes Wood County an enjoyable place to live. That prompted the idea for a new video a few years ago.
"It was outdated, and just kind of hokey, to be honest," said Joe Fawcett, assistant county administrator.
"Originally it was more geared toward 'What is county government?' and now it's kind of evolved into a tour book of the county itself."
