Maury County commissioners will next week vote on whether to chip in $400,000 to help build a $1.5 million speculative building in the 547-acre Cherry Glen Industrial Park along Highway 43 in Mt. Pleasant. Economic development officials say a number of companies are circling the area with expansion plans and argue a ready-to-go building will help them pull the trigger.
"The sooner we get this thing going, it goes back to the weapon in your arsenal," Mt. Pleasant Water System Derek Church this week told the commission's budget committee. "It gives Maury Alliance something to put the county ahead of other communities."
