As early as December 2018, the Village of Mount Pleasant knew that plans for the 20 million square foot LCD factory were not going as planned. Building plans submitted to the Village in late 2018 called for a building less than 1 million square feet - 20 times smaller than the one Foxconn promised.
When questioned in a public information meeting about the discrepancy, Village Project Manager, Claude Lois said the local development agreement allowed Foxconn to build "either" a Gen 10.5 LCD factory OR a Gen 6. This is false.
Lois then ended all public information meetings.
The Mount Pleasant knew Foxconn wasn't going to build what was described in the contract, and continued to borrow and spend hundreds of millions for land and infrastructure, for a factory they knew wasn't happening.
