IDA Officials want the parcel of land n northern Meriwether developed and prepared for a large industry prospect that could come into the county. The 1,000-acre parcel, presently owned by Mead Inc, is north of the Lone Oak community and is the same prop- erty that Ford wanted to purchase when it considered moving its Hapeville plant earlier this year. "It's a handicap when we don't own the land," Robert Hiss, Meriwether County Administrator said during an interview with The Vindicator last week. "We need to develop the land and be ready for a prospect." The IDA asked the commissioners to put up the 529 acres of land the coun- ty owns just north of Greenville for col- lateral as a down payment. The commissioners voted during their last meeting in favor by a 3-1 vote for the measure. Robert Hines was the only commis- sioner opposed to the measure. Hiss said the IDA is going to get loans from local banks to purchase the land. "They are getting the h appraised," he said, "and will make an offer." THE WORST-CASE scenarm IDA has, Hiss continued, is to the land for industrial or economic poses The loans from the banRs will be: a five-year permd and the IDA will responsible for making the interest ments out of its budget, Hiss added. The five-year loan has no tion to the current IDA contract will expire on Sept. 30, 2007. Hiss said there was a possibility  county can get a federal or state agreement to get sewer and installed on the property.
