There is demand for industrial park real estate in Morgan County, and the county should be looking into making it easier for new businesses to use such space, said Better City, the county’s economic development consultant.
The site most suitable for future industrial park development in Morgan County is on 125 acres near the recycling center, property currently owned by the Clarks and the Thackerays, said Ryan Hunter, Better City director of economic development.
Morgan City Mayor Ray Little wasn’t surprised at the location, saying it has been identified for years as a prime spot for industrial development.  “My intuition is it is a good spot,” Little said, noting that sewer trunks have already been brought to the land.

Several years ago I made trip to the Family History Library.  I was just beginning to do family history research and I had my laptop with PAF installed and all the information that I had been given by my mother and grandmother.  My grandmother had spent her entire life researching.  She had done much herself (I have about twenty family history books with stories and photos she created) and had hired professional researchers as well.

I had a great experience earlier this week.  My son has shown some interest in family history.  My wife has ancestors in England that we have been researching for some time and I was stuck on where to go next.  I invited my son down to the Family History Library and we spent about two hours with a research consultant in B-2 (the British Area).  One of the research consultants helped us and I learned a new technique for finding ancestors and learning more information about them.  In the space of  less than two hours we were able to identify more than thirty new ancestors we had not found before and gain clues about many others.

The Morgan County Council has agreed with moving forward on hiring someone to help with the county’s economic development goals.
"We have difficulties in the county," Councilman Lyle Nelson said. "We are hailed as the county that is difficult to do business in, or get a business started in. I have heard horror stories of those that gave up trying."
He said the answer to turning that around is to hire at least a part-time economic development director or consultant.
"We need someone on our side that can actively recruit," Nelson said. "We need to put some money into someone here consistently that answers the phone."
