Turning Waste Wood into Energy
Good economic news for Grant County is coming from the timber industry, with a new Torre faction plant in John Day expected to bring 13-17 full-time jobs.
Prineville Airport Improvements
Prineville Airport is flying high because of a $2 million Lottery grant through the Oregon Department of Transportation and ConnectOregon. The grant helped to replace an old fuel system and build a facility for the Central Oregon Rapellers.
A Road to Cool
Road improvements will help expand and create more local jobs, thanks in part to Lottery dollars. A short and not particularly busy road may not seem like a worthwhile improvement project to many of us, but to family owned SnoTemp, a 60-year-old Oregon company based in Albany, it’s a big deal. A grant of $1.9 million was recently awarded to upgrade Lochner Road, improving access to SnoTemp’s cold food storage and transportation facility.
