Hoping for big news soon

The Hunter Engineering building was recently sold to the Neshoba County Board of Supervisors for $450,000 last week.

While there are no immediate plans for the 106,000 square-foot facility that appraised for $1 million, we are hopeful that the Neshoba County Board of Supervisors will be able to use it to recruit new business to Union.

The facility was built on 10 acres of the 52-acre facility. The rest of the land is an undeveloped, mostly wooded area.

Neshoba officials said there has been a lot of interest in the building, but the county never had control of it to possibly sell it to a potential industry.

That’s great news for Union, which needs economic development to help replace some of the losses from businesses closing or moving out of Union.

Let’s cross our fingers. New development here will be welcome.
