The Post and Courier of Charleston reported the city council on Thursday cut the rate used to calculate annual fees for companies earning $250 million or more. There are only four such companies in the city.

The newspaper reports that, essentially, the deal was created so Boeing pays no more than about $1 million in yearly fees to North Charleston as aircraft production increases.
