COUNCIL BLUFFS, Iowa (AP) A truck leasing company has plans to move its corporate office to Council Bluffs from neighboring Omaha in Nebraska.
The Daily Nonpareil says the Council Bluffs Planning Commission has approved a rezoning request by Wayne Hoovestol to build a 24,000-square-foot building along with an attached shop and nearby warehouse.
Hoovestol told the newspaper that the construction will allow him to move his 55-person Cresco Capital operation from Omaha and consolidate it with his Lone Mountain Truck Leasing operation, which has 15 employees who would move from Pacific Junction. Cresco is the corporate and financial portion of Hoovestol's lease-to-own truck business.
He says the consolidated site will have an initial total payroll of $3.5 million. And he says he expects to add positions.
