ANDREWS - Andrews is raising the stakes in its fight for AREVA, a uranium enrichment plant.

The City made the list of top five potential sites and is now offering a very enticing incentive which includes a job creation grant, help with employee training and relocating. As well as tax abatement, which means AVENA won't have to pay taxes for two years, the most offered in Texas.

Andrews officials also offered to help with the land cost.

Areva plans to announce their decision in the next two weeks.
