Hicksville offers free land to private sector companies who set up operations in the village Industrial Park. Any type business that provides at least 20 new full-time jobs is eligible for 5 acres of land. The program is administered through the Defiance County Economic Development office and is designed to bring jobs to a shovel ready industrial park. Jobs must pay an average of 150% of the Federal minimum wage and the industry must make a 5 year commitment secured through a promissory note. For more information call Jerry Hayes at 419-784-4471 or Mayor Diane Collins at 419-542-6161.
