I realize there are other expenses involved and I'm not meaning to be sensationalist about this, but the information we have gotten from news reports indicates that Roane County is spending 2.5 million dollars to buy a third of 1100 acres in other counties for an industrial park. My little calculator tells me that's roughly $6800 an acre.

News articles point out that it was recently Bowater land. Isn't that a bit high?

And could our County Commission or County Mayor issue some bit of information filling in the blanks as to how this is such a good deal for Roane County?

Troy? Mike? Anyone?
