Victoria County courthouse

Invista, the chemical manufacturing giant, is asking for Victoria County’s nomination to receive tax refunds from the state.

County commissioners are scheduled to vote on a resolution in support of the company’s application to the Texas Enterprise Zone Program. Invista, now formally known as INV Nylon Chemicals Americas, makes fibers, fabrics, polymers and more. The company estimates it employs about 500 people at its Victoria County facility, according to a letter from the company to County Judge Ben Zeller.

Will there be a public hearing?

Before approving the request will Invista be required to demonstrate that it meets the “commitment to the community” requirements?
