A joint meeting of Jones County’s taxing entities was held last week to create an incentive package for industrial prospects that would be agreeable by all.

The July 23 meeting was called by the Development Authority of Jones County and was facilitated by attorney Kevin Brown.

County commissioners were represented by Commissioner Jonathan Pitts, the Board of Education by Chairman Ginger Bailey, and the City of Gray by councilmen David Tutfs and Terry Favors.

An information survey was filled out by 13 attendees of a previous meeting, and the results of that survey were the focus of last week’s meeting.

An incentive package is a tool used to close the deal on prospects interested in locating in a county. The incentives usually consist of a decrease in property taxes, land costs, and assistance with permitting and/or zoning if needed.
