Intermodal Authority Holds Intense Discussion on It’s Inability to Pay Bills

Friday, August 17th, 2012

The meeting was contentious from the onset as the board immediately went into a discussion of cash flow issues and the fact that numerous bills are past due including one from T&T Construction in the amount of $278,000.00. Mr. Tracy Rawls, owner of T&T was present and indicated he had pulled off the job pending being paid. He indicated he had borrowed a substantial amount of money to cover his costs while waiting upon payment from the Authority. Mr. Rawls stated that he wanted to be exempt from liability for the work he has completed should there be substantial rain before he can complete more work. There is a danger that repairs could be costly.

Intermodal Access Road Dedicated in Ceremony

Wednesday, October 20th, 2010

Last week, the first project of the Intermodal Facility, it’s access road, was dedicated in a public ceremony, attended by more that 50 business and political leaders and representatives from around the area.

The intermodal facility, set up under act 690 of 1999, is designed to unite regional entities, like the cities of Monticello and Warren and Drew and Bradley Counties, to work together to facilitate economic development.

The most important phrases included in the ceremony were “team effort” and “persistence and patience.”

John Lipton, chairman of the intermodal facility board, was not aware until the dedication that the access road was being named in his honor.

The full project encompasses 354 acres.

Monday, April 27th, 2009

seaark-logoIt was announced at a recent Intermodal Authority meeting,  that SeaArk Marine has agreed to sign a “letter of intent” with the intermodal authority, which may eventually lead to the Monticello boat manufacturer re-locating to the new industrial site, just west of Monticello, across from the sports complex.

The intermodal authority has applied for a grant from the Economic Development Administration (EDA), and one of the requirement for further consideration is a promisory “letter of intent” from an industry that would become a part of the facility. This part of the process of finalizing the grant process will hopefully lead to funding by EDA. (more…)
