Ayersville Local School District officials let Defiance County commissioners know Thursday that they would like changes to the way enterprise zone agreements are handled. Enterprise agreements are made between local businesses and county commissioners, and provide recipients with tax abatements on new investments. Under a 1994 change to state law, school districts are given the opportunity to participate in negotiations about proposed enterprise zone agreements.
