Ask the residents of Oak Grove about the noise level of Yancey' plant. They test engines that run 24 hours per day 7 days. Of course none of the BOC live in the range or site of Yancey and Steve Marro cannot hear them from his Bed and Breakfast Inn.
Niether can you so what ya whinning about, it is right next to the concrete plant and so off the beaten path you can't hardly find it.
You have told us the HALF of the story you want people to hear , now tell us the other half.
Now JC, you were the one gripping about the noise level. Why don't you enlighten us with your ENTIRE version of the story. And yes, the industrial parks in McDonough would welcome Yancey and the noise and enjoy the money made from having Yancey in their county. You always have terrible things to say about the BOC, why don't you run for office?
If that business wants to leave,let them leave.
Why would citizens even want to subsidise an antiquated venture such as YANCY, surely some lessons can be learned from this economic downturn, legacy grandstanding by the involved politicians cannot come close to covering future expense, and unforseen business bumps that our economy will have, while we transform from our current business models.
Let us all remember; that our current situation was brought about by the same line of reasoning that has gotten us to where we are today.
Perhaps a stand alone approach can be achevied by a business co-op arangement, where pike can be involved more as a facilator rather than the citizens being held hostage for someones business ventures.
Plenty of tax advantages can already be had by business expansion if done within the current guidelines established by local, state, and federal goverment.
Folks, lets not reinvent the wheel.
