Eggs & Issues highlights community’s industrial development status

MILLEDGEVILLE — An overview of Milledgeville-Baldwin County’s state of industrial development will be the focus of the third Eggs & Issues Breakfast next week.

Milledgeville-Baldwin County Development Authority Executive Director Matt Poyner will lead the discussion with local city and county officials, educators, parents, citizens and others in attendance.

“I will give an overview of what the development authority does and how it works. I will also give an overview of the past six months and for the next six months and beyond. I will give a walk through of a project we’ve been working on, a timeline of it, what was requested and who was involved, but I can’t provide a name of the project at this point,” Poyner said. “I think people will be interested to see what’s going on, and I’m excited to let people know how things work.”

At the Milledgeville-Baldwin County Chamber of Commerce’s Eggs & Issues Breakfast, business and community leaders, and elected officials take the opportunity to have an open forum discussing issues relating to Milledgeville and Baldwin County. Topics include legislative agenda, education, transportation and economic development.

The initial series held in October featured school Superintendent Geneva Braziel, who delivered an update on the school system’s successes and challenges. At the second breakfast in November, Oconee Regional Medical Center CEO Jean Aycock provided an update on the state of community health care.

Registration for the Eggs & Issues Breakfast centered on industrial development is slated to begin at 7:30 a.m. Thursday, Jan. 17, at The Original Crockett’s. The series is presented by Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) and is sponsored by Ocmulgee Site and Environmental Services Inc.

Tickets are $10 each, or $75 for a table of eight. The cost of tickets includes a breakfast buffet prior to the 8 a.m. presentation.
