Maybe the IDA - Industrial DEVELOPMENT Agency - should focus on progressing infrastructure instead of just handing out bribes.


Gee, I wonder why this land industrial space in Ashville and Ripley is just sitting here???? Perhaps because it's in the middle of nowhere and lacks plumbing.

Agree with Charelsk...why wasn't this brought up during prior discussions with the company. Perhaps the IDA should be paying more attention to the details and less to the PR hype. IDA comments seem to be reactive where they should have been playing a more proactive role in this.If known earlier this probably coud have been negotiated out and perhaps given some financial incentive to correct the water problem. This should be a reminder not to put the cart ahead of the horse and that a deal isn't finall until the ink is dry.

Totally ridiculous!!! It's too bad that a depressed County had to lose this great opportunity of 100 jobs. If it all had to do with water, wells could have been drilled on the site or a water line from Cummins 1 1/2 miles away could have been extended for approx. $300,000. This would also benefit property between Cummins & the plant. 200,000 gallons per day would cost approx. $80 a day for water through the BPU minus whatever water could be supplied from wells. This is a very cheap investment for 100 jobs. The County was sleeping again!!!!

You've got to be kidding. How could something like utility needs be left as a "last minute" item? Shame on the IDA for not checking these needs at the onset of the process.

Excuse me, Jamestownite???!!!! What possible cause could you have for slamming The Resource Center, whose funding has been cut drastically in the last few years in spite of the climbing costs of caring for the residents? Do you have something against people with disabilities having a decent place to live, food to eat, medical care, and people to work with them? Budget cuts have cut staffing to the bare bones, and houses are watching every penny they spend, even on food and electricity! Houses and programs that are desperately needed are in danger of closing from lack of funds. Try getting a few facts before you spew your hatred.

Too bad but no real surprise. Seriously, how can you be surprised?

'the company estimated it would use 200,000 gallons of water a day.' I would have thought a significant amount of water like that would have been addressed early on. Isn't that what an impact study is for? Very unfortunate.
