The consolidation of three Maximus Inc. offices into space at 3750 Monroe Ave. in Pittsford will bring a community benefit of $19.2 million, officials said Tuesday.

The County of Monroe Industrial Development Agency approved an application for $225,648 in sales and mortgage tax exemptions related to a $4.7 million project that will create 203 new jobs, officials said. Maximus will spend $1.5 million on furniture and equipment.

Maximus, a Reston, Va.-based firm that provides administrative and regulatory services to federal, state and local governments, plans to combine offices in Fairport, Victor and suburban Buffalo at the Pittsford location.

COMIDA also approved a payment in lieu of taxes agreement with exemptions of $3.6 million for Greece Town Mall L.P.’s $11 million redevelopment at Greece Ridge Center. The community benefit is projected to be $17.9 million...

Tuesday’s meeting also included several speakers who asked COMIDA to review and terminate incentive agreements for VWR International LLC as it shuts down operations in Tonawanda, Erie County, and moves them to offices in Henrietta.

Some 40 jobs were lost in Tonawanda, and the company should not be given tax breaks for growth in Henrietta, protestors said. Some 70 jobs remain in Tonawanda.
