Union County received the $151,770 ARC Grant in FY2011.The Union County Development Authority also applied for a ARC Grant for the road going to the Spec Buildings.
This is interesting. This is there appication.

Sewer, Water, Drainage $68,550
SITE PREPARATION $142,800
Planning and Engineering $3,500
Land Acquistion $71,400
UCDA Pro Rata of water and sewer $104,450
Total Project $542,470
Funding Sources & Funding Need
In addition to the Development Authority's request for $151,770 in ARC funds, the UCDA has commited to provide $390,700 in local project funding.(see attached letters of commitment)
Where is the UCDA going to get $390,700?
Site Preparation $142,800 This raises a question.
In Nov. of 2000 in the NGN Panter Construction was awarded the contract to grade the sites on the Blairsville Airport Regional Industrial Park. The bid was for $1,346,443.85.
In the bid proposals for the Spec Buildings it says: Exisiting site is "PAD READY" and only some minor stripping of topsoil will be preformed.
Why was another $142,800 needed for site Preparation when over a million dollars was spent getting them ready?
Where is YOUR MONEY GOING????
By the way SPLOST 3 money was also used already on this road.
In FY 2010 Union County Received an ARC Grant in the amount of $100,000 for the cannery project showing an estimated total cost of $270,735.
