Supervisors approve $5M bond notice

By NEMS Daily Journal

STARKVILLE – Oktibbeha County supervisors have passed a resolution to let the public know it will borrow $5 million when needed to support an economic development opportunity.
Supervisors took the action this week at the urging of the Golden Triangle Development LINK, a local economic development group. The county would borrow the money by issuing bonds. Residents have until June 3 to submit petitions calling for an election on the issue.
Officials said the county is more likely to attract major developments with this in place. The city of Starkville will be asked to make a similar commitment.
