County Fair Association sets Monday meeting
The Marshall County Fair Association will hold its annual membership meeting on Monday, Jan. 25.
The meeting will be held at the fairgrounds, on Highway 7 North, in the cattle building and will begin at 7 p.m.
All interested in the fairgrounds are encouraged to attend. Come out and meet your district representative. All members are urged to attend, as well.
Many important decisions for the upcoming year are made at this meeting.
Marshall County IDA revamps its website
The Marshall County Industrial Development Authority is trying out a new design of its website, www.marshallcoms.com, according to IDA director Bill Mobley.
The site is designed for quick information retrieval for businesses and corporations that want to take a look at what the county has to offer in terms of transportation, education, location and workforce availability.
Looking deeper into the website, users find an abundance of information about the communities as a whole and their composition, county resources, amenities, maps and incentives that make it easier for large businesses and corporations to come to Mississippi and to Marshall County.
A link to the tax maps was recently added.
Mobley reported on the updated and redesigned website last week to the Marshall County Board of Supervisors.
He also provided supervisors a joint resolution to be signed with Benton County that may help bring in second or third tier supplier companies for the Toyota plant to the Potts Camp area.
Work on building Mt. Carmel Road in the Chickasaw Trail Industrial Park is proceeding and will be expanded to three lanes as soon as demand increases with the addition of a prospective client, he said.
The Marshall County IDA is still working with the local delegation and the board of supervisors and other agencies in an attempt to get Highway 72 completed to a four-lane near the entry to Tennessee, he said.
“We are still working and it is extremely critical, the whole thing,” Mobley said.
“We are trying to get something set up with the governor (to fund the four-laning of about four miles).”
The next meeting of the Marshall County Board of Supervisors will be at 9 a.m. on Monday, Feb. 1, in Holly Springs.
