Americus--Economic Developers in Americus hope they'll be able to announce soon that new jobs are coming to town.

Right now, they're talking to several companies. One of them is a Texas-based business that could potentially create about 225 jobs during the first five years of operation.

The chamber of commerce president says there are several reasons Americus appeals to these companies.  

"We have a lot of diversity in our economy. We're strong in retail and service. But we're also very strong in manufacturing. We have a lot of assets, like good industrial parks," says David Garriga.

The negotiations are still in the early stages and Americus is competing with other southeastern cities.
