GREENSBORO, NC (AP) — Guilford County commissioners are considering whether to ask state legislators to contribute $250,000 for incentives to convince company officials to bring a HondaJet business to Piedmont Triad International Airport.

The High Point Enterprise reported that commissioners will discuss Thursday whether to ask the General Assembly for the money. In August, commissioners approved a $771,000 incentives package.

The Greensboro City Council also has approved incentives of more than $500,000 for the $80 million project to expand on to 30 acres and construct two new buildings.

The project has three parts: a service center for major maintenance and repair, a parts warehouse, and a center where the company would make components such as wings, doors and windows.
