Posted on November 14, 2013 by Sally Mesarosh

Gilbert Public Schools’ governing board cancelled Wednesday’s meeting during which the board was supposed to vote on joining seven other government agencies in approval of a tax break for Apple, which has planned to open a manufacturing firm in Mesa.

Seven government entities — Maricopa County, Mesa Community College, Maricopa Community Colleges, Central Arizona Project, Maricopa Integrated Health System, East Valley Institute of Technology and Mesa — have approved the break, said Mesa’s Director of Economic Development Bill Jabjiniak.
