$35,000 tax abatement for Red Wing Shoe
If it helps Red Wing, it helps Goodhue County.
That's why commissioners say they voted Tuesday to abate $35,000 worth of property taxes to help Red Wing Shoe Co.'s new downtown museum.
The museum will be part of the Shoe's new retail store.
The Shoe will pay county property taxes as normal starting in 2011 but will receive a $2,334 refund each year for 15 years.
