Monroe is considering several incentives for an auto parts supplier that wants to expand.
UGN Inc., which opened a plant in Monroe about three years ago, is deciding whether it will bring 100 more manufacturing employees and around $6 million in payroll to the city or to Valparaiso, Ind., as previously reported by this news outlet.
UGN makes acoustic, interior trim, and thermal management products, and it is based near Chicago and has seven locations. It built its $50 million, 232,000-square-foot Monroe operation in 2015 and has hired about 280.
City Council will meet at 6:30 p.m. today to hear the second reading of legislation that would provide the local incentives.
