ACTION TAKEN: AUTHORIZED THE MAYOR AND CITY MANAGER TO NEGOTIATE WITH VF JEANSWEAR FOR A GOODWILL ECONOMIC IMPACT SETTLEMENT AND TO DRAFT A RESOLUTION ASKING FOR THAT SETTLEMENT

DISCUSSION AND ACTION ON ASSIGNING THE ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT DEPARTMENT THE TASK OF NEGOTIATING WITH VF JEANSWEAR FOR A GOOD-WILL ECONOMIC IMPACT SETTLEMENT IN THE FULL AMOUNT OF PROPERTY TAXES ABATED TO THEM. FOR A PERIOD OF TIME COMMENCING ABOUT 10 YEARS AGO, THE CITY OF EL PASO PROVIDED ABOUT $500,000 IN ABATEMENTS TO VF JEANSWEAR. SINCE THAT TIME, ALMOST ALL OF VF JEANSWEAR MANUFACTURING FACILITIES HAVE CLOSED, RESULTING IN SIGNIFICANT JOB LOSSES FOR A POPULATION OF WORKERS THAT HAS HAD A DIFFICULT TIME TRANSITIONING BACK INTO THE WORKFORCE BECAUSE OF LIMITED SKILLS AND LIMITED ENGLISH-LANGUAGE PROFICIENCY. BECAUSE OF THE SUBSTANTIAL NEGATIVE ECONOMIC IMPACT ON THE COMMUNITY OF THESE MANUFACTURING CLOSURES, THE CITY SHOULD ASK VF JEANSWEAR TO CONSIDER GRANTING $500,000 TO PROGRAMS THAT HELP VF JEANSWEAR DISPLACED WORKERS TRANSITION BACK TO THE WORKFORCE AT A LIVING WAGE.
