Cordele- The county agreed to loan the city nearly one million dollars for a 500,000 gallon water tank needed in the Cedar Creek Corporate Park off highway 300.

The tower will help the Industrial Development Authority build a SPEC building that will hopefully attract new industries.

Crisp County Manager, Gene Crapse exaplains "Jobs, jobs, jobs. That's it. It's jobs for citizens of this community. It's economic development, It's growth, but all that is based on jobs and we believe the community has everything there is to offer." 

The water tower is neccesary for for industries to help out with fire insurance costs.
