WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. -- A North Carolina county is putting aside the money it recovered when Dell Inc. decided to close its computer assembly plant.
The Winston-Salem Journal reported Tuesday that Forsyth County commissioners decided to keep Dell's refund of the county's financial incentives in a special fund. The county had offered the money to help lure Dell to the site in 2005.
The county reclaimed nearly $8 million after Dell said last year it would close the factory near Winston-Salem.
Since announcing the plant was closing, Dell has extended the date three times. Dell says increased demand for desktop computers will continue production at the plant through the end of October.
