MEIGS, GA (WALB) - Alternative Fuel will help create 50 jobs in Thomas County.

Governor Sonny Perdue announced today that Woodlands Alternative Fuels will invest 15 million dollars and open a mill in Meigs.

The company will use sawmill waste and pulpwood to create wood pellets for fuel. They purchased the former Waverly Minerals facility to house the operation.

If all goes as planned, they will be open by June of 2009.
