Wilson, who was not in attendance, hopes that the lot will be used for Habitat for Humanity houses. The lot in question is in the Hayden Heights subdivision, said Trigg County Judge Executive Stan Humphries.
The lot, which space for one house, will be given to the county in the hopes that the county will work with the housing authority or Habitat for Humanity of Hopkinsville, Humphries said, adding that there will be no cost to the county for the lot.
Additionally, Sharon Butts and Steve Allen of the Cadiz-Trigg County Economic Development Commission gave a presentation on economic development within Trigg County, although no action was taken. One of the developments mentioned was the career development center near Cracker Barrel that opened recently.
“With the announcement of Benson closing, we were fortunate to have Wabash National Transcraft com along and buy them out … making this an easy transition for the plant and the community,” Butts said.
