By  | 

HAWTHORNE, Fla. (WCJB)-- Hawthorne residents may soon have more job opportunities after the city passed a new tax exemption Tuesday night.

The initiative proposed giving exemptions to new and expanding businesses that would bring in more jobs.

The measure passed with 81% support.

Mayor Matt Surrency said, while Hawthorne has the ability to give tax incentives to these businesses, the exemptions will need to be approved on a case-by-case basis.
