STARKVILLE — Starkville and Oktibbeha County officials are hoping for an announcement as early as October on a proposed $20 million data processing facility.
The Commercial Dispatch reports that Joey Deason, Oktibbeha County’s representative with the Golden Triangle Development Link, said a tentative announcement date of Oct. 3 has been set for what is called “Project Cumulus.”
Deason released no other details about the announcement during a meeting of the Oktibbeha County Economic Development Authority.
Officials have said the project could bring in five or six permanent jobs plus about 100 temporary jobs during construction at the Thad Cochran Research Park.
The Starkville Board of Aldermen and Oktibbeha County Board of Supervisors each approved 10-year tax abatements on the site’s property taxes to entice the investor.
