Progress in Hunter Industrial Park

An update on getting ready for the Muffin Mam’s new bakery in Laurens was presented last evening at the Laurens Commission of Public Works meeting for July. General Manager John Young said an eight-inch fire tap has been made and the twelve-inch water line has also been completed. Young said Martin Brothers Construction has begun work on a sewer line to service the new plant in Hunter Industrial Park.

The Commissioners also went into executive session for discussions of recent legal actions, for a contractual matter and to get a competitive update regarding a potential expansion in Hunter Industrial Park.

The Laurens Commissioners of Public Works were also updated last evening on general improvements now underway. General Manager John Young reviewed improvements being planned, being implemented or completed. He noted the new LED sign now operating on Church Street in front of the office, reported on lobby security measures and exterior renovations. Young also said a painting project for the CPW warehouse is to begin this month.
