‘‘McLennan County’s rapid population increase has made Hewitt a most desirable place for business.
Hewitt’s proximity to Interstate 35 provides for easy access to the rest of the state and nation. Rail service from the Santa Fe railway also connects Hewitt to major distribution centers. The 900-acre McGregor Municipal Airport, only 15 minutes away, provides air service for single– and multi-engine aircraft as well as helicopters. Waco Regional Airport is served by two commercial airlines.
McLennan County offers businesses an educated, young labor force with a solid work ethic and a variety of skills. In addition to a good labor supply and access to transportation, businesses enjoy a low tax rate.
To further encourage growth, an attractive tax abatement policy is available. This policy includes both new and existing businesses within Hewitt’s city limits and is a positive stop in the city’s continuing efforts to increase Hewitt’s commercial and industrial growth.
