“From my understanding Fleetwood Homes, in Lafayette, has plans to expand,” said City Mayor Richard Driver on Monday afternoon.


“They are discussing building a 20,000 square foot building, increasing production, and hiring 70 new employees during the next three years,” continued Mayor Driver.

Mayor Driver explained that when Fleetwood Homes bought the land and built their buildings on Highway 52 By Pass West, it was deeded to the Lafayette Industrial Development Board for payment in lieu of taxes. 

“The Lafayette Industrial Development Board will meet with Fleetwood Homes and discuss renogiating the payment in lieu of taxes agreement, before further steps will be taken” added the Mayor.
