NATCHEZ — A chance to help a local industry speed up a $30-million investment has prompted the Adams County Board of Supervisors to simplify what had become a complex process to purchase large warehouse near the Natchez-Adams County Port.
The county had originally planned to help purchase the building through a complicated agreement that would have a third-party holding the property’s deed. Instead supervisors decided yesterday to purchase the property outright.
Natchez Inc. executive director Chandler Russ tells The Natchez Democrat the change in financial arrangements was prompted by an immediate need by Genesis Energy to complete a $30 million expansion of its operations at the port.
Genesis plans to double the size of its railcar capacity at its terminal in the port and add approximately 20 new jobs.
