HARLINGEN — Officials appear close to entering into agreements with a new business.

But they remain mum about the project named for the hammer-wielding Norse god associated with thunder, lighting, power and fertility.

City commissioners tomorrow are expected to meet behind closed doors before considering agreements with the business prospect code-named Project Thor.

Raudel Garza, chief executive officer of the Harlingen Economic Development Corporation, said a confidentiality agreement prevented him from disclosing details until commissioners take action.

After the closed-door meeting, commissioners are expected to consider entering into what is known as a Chapter 380 agreement that could provide the business with incentives.

Chapter 380 of the Local Government Code authorizes municipalities to offer incentives designed to promote economic development such as commercial and retail projects.
