The Trenton City Council unanimously approved a Tax Increment Financing Plan for future construction of an Orscheln Home & Garden at 28th Street and Highway 65. The tax abatement holds property tax values as a vacant site while Orscheln develops the property, according to City Administrator Ron Urton.

Urton said the city has not yet seen the site plans for the new store, as Orscheln is in the process of finalizing them.
