Job-seekers, listen up. 150 new jobs are coming to the city of Ontario. City council Thursday night will vote on a resolution to sell a 22-acre parcel of land, located off Beer Road, to a Kansas City developer.

That property is part of the Ontario Industrial Park -- 67 acres the city bought ten years ago. And the developer -- JDC Property Group -- has a client who has big plans for the site.

Mark Weidemyre, councilman, and Director of the Ontario Growth Corporation, says that client is a Fortune 500 company. And their planned expansion would bring 150 jobs to the city.

Weidemyre says the Ontario Growth Association has worked all year to get a commitment for the project. And the proposed tenant will be the first for the Ontario Industrial Park. An announcement revealing the identity of the company will likely be made in January.
