(KMOV) – The Wentzville Board of Alderman unanimously voted Wednesday night to give tax credits to General Motors if the company brings 2,000 jobs to St. Charles County.

About 1,300 people work at the GM plant now, but that number could jump to 3,300 if GM expands in the area.

The $300 million expansion of 500,000 square feet would translate into 2,000 new workers to build a brand new line of cars. The city Board of Alderman voted to give GM 75 percent property tax abatement for 10 years if GM brings those jobs.
