HUNTSVILLE, AL (WAFF) -

Madison County will contribute $3 million to the incentive package that will bring the Remington Outdoor Company to Huntsville.

Commissioners met Tuesday to talk about what the move means for the county. Chairman Dale Strong said the commission has been engaged in the deal since Day One.

"These kinds of opportunities come along once in a lifetime, and we didn't miss our opportunity," said Strong. "There are a lot of states that wish they were where we are today. There are a lot of cities and counties, but I tell you, our community is the winner and will produce jobs for many days ahead."

Commissioners will meet next Wednesday to officially vote and agree on the incentive package.
