PCEDF Discusses Business Endeavors in Pulaski County

The Pulaski County Economic Development Foundation Board earlier this month discussed a number of topics pertaining to business expansion in Pulaski County.

Executive Director Nathan Origer told the board that he had attended the K-IRPC executive commission 2013 budget meeting, and other than a significant decrease to the transportation funds, grant funding would not change much.

The board also learned that the Advisory Plan Commission approved a rezoning request for the former Anvil and Saw property, and T&S Recycle also received its loan from the county’s Revolving Loan Fund. As a result, T&S Recycle purchased the property and has begun to operate at that location. The Advisory Plan Commission is also now offering a grace period for landowners who disagree with the zoning of their properties, allowing them to appeal.

Origer explained that he had also visited a number of local businesses over the last two months, including Schlatter’s, T&S Recycle, K&B Manufacturing, Leman Custom Cabinets, Apple Blossom Honey Farm, and Fratco. He said he was able to set up a partnership between Apple Blossom Honey Farm and T&S Recycle.
