Dubuque City Council approves sale of former Flexsteel facility to Simmons
The vote passed 7-0.
Simmons will apply for tax credits of $3 million from the state, along with tax refunds, money for job training and an $800,000 forgivable loan.
The City will also sell eight acres of city-owned land to Simmons for parking and more warehouse space.
Simmons is planning to add 138 full-time jobs by the end of 2021, and more jobs through 2023 for a total of 271 positions.
Simmons is also asking to change the name of the road to change from “Flexsteel Way” to “Simmons Way.”
