David Padgett, Bullock County Economic Developer, presented a request for the Fitzpatrick Greenhouse Expansion Project. The money will help with drainage and front parking.

The expansion is supposed to bring in double the sales tax money the business is now collecting. The commission approved $4000 for site prep work.

The Smitherman Trust owns approximately 250 acres, located next to the Franklin Field Airport. Padgett made the request to the commission to market the property on state websites. Padgett also will be allowed to show the property.

The Development Authority will pay $2000 to the Smitherman Trust a year for a first right of refusal option.
