How funny is this report out of Charleston, South Carolina? As - if our city had a hit squad out on all other cities. Perhaps Charleston would swap some of that tourist money for a warehouse or two. Frankly Jacksonville has lots of warehouses, highways and railroad tracks, just how much is enough? Anyway, we are hearing the same story about Charleston, doing the same thing, from our end. Besides talking about Cold Fronts, Charleston is way colder. Now THAT is funny.
Charleston apparently was one of at least two Southeast port cities to be frozen out of a possible $25.5 million investment by a refrigerated warehouse operator.
According to recent reports out of northern Florida, Jacksonville officials have set the wheels in motion to provide $230,000 in incentives to nail down the deal with Millard Refrigerated Services of Omaha, Neb. The first phase of the 185,000-square-foot warehouse project would create 92 jobs by 2010, paying an average salary of more than $37,000.
In addition to Jacksonville and Charleston, Millard, a 45-year-old family-owned international warehouse and distribution company, had Savannah on it short list. As with most economic-development deals that involve a stop at the taxpayer trough, this one was kept hush-hush and still hasn't been officially announced. Fittingly, the assigned code name is "Project Coldfront."
