Other projects are conspicuously absent from the news and media. There is development of a partnership with a wood-chip factory underway which was also planned as far back as 2016. The plant would utilize a “high load factor” for city owned utilities – becoming a great source of city revenue. Reportedly, the city outbid Georgia Power Company for the piece of business, but has only offered tax incentives for the plant locating to Adel. No definite plans exist (that I can find), but the rumor mill suggests the city may offer upgraded infrastructure (roads, sewer, etc) to cater to the plant in the form of CIP’s. As a city employee, I think to opportunity for vastly improved city revenues is exciting, but some citizens may push back as the funds fatten the government coffers and may not readily be redistributed.
