Aiken Standard (Newspaper) - May 6, 1993, Aiken, South Carolina Page 2B Aiken Standard Aiken SCThursday May 6 1993 Germans Continued From Page IB Germany has one of the best edu cated work forces he said where as North Carolina and South Caro lina rank as the 43rd and 46th states respectively in adult illiter acy in the United States James Schriner a vice president with PHH Fantus a consultant that helped BMW pick a site said even many American companies still assume everybody talks slow theyre dumb and do they even wear shoes Another benefit for the German companies is the low labor costs and the loyalty of the workers in the Carolinas The workers are very loyal says Willy Ruefen acht Heiima Helvetions presi dent In New York ask some one to come in on a Saturday to take care of extra workloads and theyll say Youre crazy Most likely the main reason Ger man companies have decided to lo cate plants in the Carolinas partic ularly in South Carolina has to do with plain old hard sell by the host states South Carolina doled out gener ous incentive packages as well as marketing itself as a lowwage and lowcost state Last year for in stance it offered BMW mil lion including million in tax breaks one of the most lavish incentive plans ever offered to at tract a foreign car plant McCar thy states South Carolina bought the land for the plant site and agreed to get a runway extended at Greenviile Spartanburg Airport to enable it to bring in big cargo planes the arti cle stated And on top of the benefits Ger mans see in the Carolinas the ad justment Carolinas workers will have to make to the Germans is also of interest McCarthy notes He states Germans dont often sit well with the halfmillion Americans who work for them Camera Club Presents Birds From My Window The Aiken Camera

public is invited Developer Waits On County Continued From Page IB on the larger tract but is demand ing the right to use the 29 acres as he sees fit including the location of a convenience store After Tuesday nights approval of the Butler measure Moore ex pressed outrage and shock that the county council would pass the ordi nance without allowing Lacey a chance to present his case or weigh the legal consequences Moore also condemned the coun tys refusal to issue a building per mit for the 29 acres despite repeat ed requests from Lacey Withholding of the permit is one of the grounds for the lawsuit The rezoning of the land from commercial to residential use was ordered by the county council de spite the property being classified commercial in a fringe area zoning map that went into effect on March 1 In the original zoning map ap proved last fall the property had been assigned residential status but was changed back to its com mercial designation on third read ing at the request of Lacey When the fringe area zoning map and development standards law went into effect March 1 commer cial classification was reserved for the two tracts That led Moore to maintain at a hearing on April 20 that the county was violating its own ordinances by changing the classification He said zoning changes cannot be made within 12 months after a new zoning classification goes into effect Moore said he was utterly amazed that the county council would proceed with second reading of the ordinance despite not having proper legal grounds to do so and especially by violating its own zon ing laws
