Mathis in talks with prospective new employers

The Grady County Joint Development Authority is in the very early stages of negotiations with two prospective new employers and while one of them may be delayed until next year the other could bear fruit this year, according to JDA Executive Director Chadd Mathis.
Mathis briefed the authority Tuesday on a prospect he has code named Project Fresh. According to Mathis, he will be meeting with company officials in the next several weeks.
The executive director also recommended to the authority that bids be solicited for the removal of pecan trees in Milestone Industrial Park Phase 2 to make it ready for development.
“The area in front of Performance Food Service is the closest to gravity flow sewer and water that we have and hopefully we would want to develop that section first,” Mathis said.
During the authority’s monthly meeting, Mathis also updated the authority members on the need to have the former Higdon Furniture Company plant treated for termites and he is continuing to work with a roofing contractor to correct issues at the Heritage Industrial Complex.
