New release from Congressman Jack Kingston's Office

WASHINGTON, DC – A site being used to attract new businesses and new jobs is receiving a $300,000 investment in the federal government.  The funding, which Congressman Jack Kingston (R-GA) worked to secure with local leaders, will be used to provide for water and sewer improvements at the site.

"Rural communities rely on new industry to provide for growth for future generations," Congressman Kingston said, "and infrastructure like this is the first thing that businesses look for when selecting new locations.  I'm proud to support Berrien County's growth and look forward to this industrial park filling up with new businesses and new jobs."

The new industrial park is located just outside of Enigma on Highway 82.  Development began at the location after the Berrien County Industrial Park reached full capacity in 2002.

"The Berrien County Development Authority is very grateful to Congressman Kingston for acquiring additional funding for our new industrial park," said Mary Alice McGee, Executive Director of the Berrien County Industrial Authority.  "Improving the infrastructure of our park will certainly make our site more attractive to industries looking at our community to either relocate or start a new business."

The funding has been approved by both the House and Senate and now awaits the President's signature.
