Come Monday, county commissioners will decide on a $750,000 incentives package for IBM.
The company, which is the largest private employer in Research Triangle Park, is interested in buildling a $362 million data center, and creating 10 jobs for the project.
Durham is competing with New York and Colorado for the expansion, according to background information supplied with the commissioners' agenda, which can be found on their Web site.
Durham County has offered incentives packages to more than 13 companies since 1998, including a $200,000 package to IBM/Tivoli in 1998 for a $28 million research center.
