Mitchell County-- Construction on Georgia's first alternative fuel plant continues on schedule in Mitchell County. The plant will create as many as 45 jobs and have a $1.2 million dollar annual payroll. The facility will be the first of its kind in the Southeast. Investors say work on the plant is coming along smoothly and it should be finished by next summer.  

"The ethanol plant is coming fine , it's coming up out of the ground well a lot of activity out there now, Fagen is onsite and beginning to build the plant and pour concrete things are going well" said Mitchell County farmer Murray Campbell.

The alternative fuel manufacturing facility is being built between Camilla and Pelham on 192-acres in the Mitchell County Industrial Park.
