Hull said after the meeting the company pays about $10,000 a year in county property taxes. The Effingham City Council is expected to consider a similar measure at its meeting next week.
The company manufactures plastic bottles used by bottling companies throughout the Midwest.
In other action Thursday, the committee agreed to pass on several items related to the new Effingham County transportation system, including a purchase of service agreement for fiscal year 2014 and a budget for the program.
The committee also agreed to pass on a schedule of fees and hours for the county's animal control department. Animal Control Supervisor Brent Budde said the office would remain open from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays. But Budde said he planned to add hours from 7 to 10 a.m. Saturday for those who can't make it in weekdays.
The fees, which were discussed by the committee last month, include steep increases in dog and cat adoption fees, as well as imposition of an after-hours service fee and increase in the daily boarding fee.
Budde said the increased fees are needed to cover the increased costs of spaying and neutering adoptable pets.
The committee also agreed Thursday to recommend appointment of Karen Luchtefeld as the county board representative on the county Health Board, replacing Doug McCain.
