Apple is one step closer to being offered US$89 million in tax breaks to set up a data centre in Biggest Little City in the World, aka Reno, Nevada.
The Nevada Board of Economic Development approved a deal on the plan t that was initially negotiated by Reno's city council. Despite, the state being closer to inviting Apple to set up shop, there are still a few more logistics the government must sort out. The potential new Nevada facilities include a business and purchasing centre in downtown Reno and a 350-acre data centre for Apple's cloud computing services east of Sparks. Once the construction is complete, there will be at least 35 full-time workers along with nearly 200 contract workers. Apple has also said it will invest US$1 billion in the Reno area over the next decade.
