LCDA put money behind promoting growth
Placeholder Image
The Liberty County Development Authority recently took action on several items.
To bolster efforts to get more troops on Fort Stewart, the board agreed to formally support the Friends of Liberty and Fort Stewart, a group formed to enhance the value of Fort Stewart and its benefits to surrounding communities through a regional partnership.  
By committing to its most supportive platinum membership of $1,000 per month and providing a one-time contribution of $50,000 to help boost several efforts
of the organization, the LCDA board affirmed its support of the group’s immediate and long-term efforts to support Fort Stewart growth.   
LCDA Chairman Allen Brown said, “The growth of Fort Stewart tremendously benefits our entire economy from contractors and small businesses to increased retail sales tax revenues and additional retirees who settle in the area and pay local property taxes and support community efforts.
“The LCDA views our actions on behalf of the growth of Fort Stewart as that of helping our largest existing employer not only retain existing employees, but also further their growth and the resultant increase in overall benefits in our county and region.  We are proud to take this action and encourage local businesses to join the effort to grow Fort Stewart as well.”
In other business, the LCDA board unanimously voted for the chairman to sign an intergovernmental agreement between the Liberty County Commission, the cities of Allenhurst, Flemington, Gumbranch, Hinesville, Midway, Riceboro and Walthourville, and the LCDA in support of the new Liberty Regional Water and Sewer Council. The council was created to better plan and coordinate the provision of water and sewer services in Liberty County and its communities.
