Grady is on the short list for new employer
Officials with a Canadian-based firm flew down and met with Grady County Joint Development Authority Executive Director Chadd Mathis last week and are back in town today to discuss the possibility of locating an agri-business operation in Grady County.
Mathis has dubbed the prospective new employer as “Project Grow” and at Tuesday’s monthly meeting of the JDA he updated the authority members on the on-going negotiations.
According to Mathis, Grady County is on the short list of potential sites for the company’s expansion.
“We are one of three locations they are considering. It’s tough competition and I am meeting with them again Wednesday,” Mathis said.
The JDA director says the company would employ approximately 10 to begin with and would possibly grow to between 20 and 25 new jobs.
“Hopefully after tomorrow we will know more,” Mathis said Tuesday.
