By a unanimous vote, the Macoupin County Board at a recent special meeting approved the sale of just over 8 acres of property to Poggenpohl Redi-Mix, a local concrete business. The sale is not officially complete until it meets closing which is expected to be within the next 30 days.
The overall project is expected to create 5 jobs and approximately $20,000 in annual sales tax revenue. In addition, there will be an initial $500,000 investment by the company and the property will be returned to the County property tax roles. This is the first business recruitment win and first site development project underway for Macoupin Economic Development Partnership.
Macoupin County Board Chairman Andy Manor said that once the transaction is completed, the concrete operation will be the first to locate in what will then be called the Macupin County Business Park, just north of Carlinville.
