Cuthbert wants new industries

August 5, 2004

Cuthbert- Many people in the Cuthbert area recently lost their jobs in closings of plants such as Columbia Forest Products.

Mayor Willie Martin says there are no sure signs of job growth right now, but the city and county are working hard to attract new businesses. "I'm working with a gentleman about a processing company coming in so we're working on things. Right now it doesn't look that bright, but we're optimistic that some things going to turn and things are going to get better," said Martin.

The Randolph County school system is the largest employer in that area.
