Willacoochee - The sounds of dump trucks and drills means preparation for Willaccochee's new catfish plant is almost complete.
Johnny Huddleston will manage Georgia Sweetwater Catfish, and is confident business will boom. He says the plant will not only benefit Willacoochee and Atkinson County, but the entire region.
"The plant will initially create jobs for 70 people, and employ up to 200 within the next three years, "said Huddleston.
South Georgia farmers are also in for a treat. "Many farmers have told us that they might be interested in raising the catfish and if that happens, we'd be buying them from those farmers and boosting their incomes."
And if business does well, taxpayers will also see a difference. "We've got a really problem with property taxes in this county, so we welcome any new business that can come in and help us with that," said Edwin Davis, County Commissioner.
The catfish plant should be ready for production by mid-February.
