Maury County mayor says he'll be fair with GM

COLUMBIA, Tenn. (AP) -- Maury County Mayor James Bailey says the government will be fair with General Motors over the company's in-lieu-of-tax agreement.

According to The Daily Herald, some county officials expect GM to seek to change the agreement after announcing it is returning vehicular production to its plant in Spring Hill in the county.

The agreement means GM's flat yearly payments to the county and its cities are contingent on whether some portion of the plant is being used for automobile assembly.

Bailey said the county doesn't want to give anything away but doesn't want to destroy GM either.

The paper said GM declined to comment on the status of the agreement.

GM will begin producing the Chevrolet Equinox later this year. The former Saturn plant has been idle for three years.
