Development Authority Names New Officers
Wednesday, 20 November 2013

November 20--  The Toombs County Development Authority has a new slate of officers to start the new year.

Wendell Dixon succeeds the late Chip Matheson as chairman.  The vice-chairman is Tommy Rollins with Reid McArthur, secretary; Sam Polk, assistant secretary; Robert Greene, treasurer and Michael Grimes, assistant treasurer.  Mike McKinley from M&T Farms joins the board succeeding Wayne Smith whose term has expired.

The Authority hopes to receive bids in January for a new "spec" building in the U.S. One Industrial Park north of Lyons.  Cost estimates range up to $2.5 million.

Part of the financing will be done with a $1 million loan from local banks organized by the People's Bank.

Meanwhile, Authority officials say they have $200,000 available for low interest loans to local businesses to help retain or create local jobs.
