Oakridge Global Energy Solutions Corp has cleared another hurdle in its plans to open 230,000 square foot manufacturing facility at the site of the former MC Assembly building on Kirby Circle. The Palm Bay City Council has followed the lead of Brevard County by unanimously approving a tax break of $11.95 million. The tax breaks will be contingent upon the company providing 1,000 jobs by the end of 2018. Brevard County voted in June to approve $8.95 million in county property tax breaks. – Florida Today
