Seneca leaders: groundbreaking part of “new day”

Among those to look for in the audience at this morning’s ground breaking for the Golden Corner Commerce Park sewer line is Frank Ables, a former county council chairman. While in office Ables championed the cause for economic development in District Five, the district he represented and home to property set aside for future development. And he told 96.3/WGOG NEWS he may just be in attendance for this morning’s ceremony. At their meeting last night, Seneca leaders hailed the groundbreaking as a “new day”—as part of a growing partnership between city and county governments. City Administrator Greg Dietterick told the Seneca mayor and council last night that the city will gain the customers who eventually tap onto the 13.5 mile line. And, he said, the new sewer line is proof of county government’s willingness to invest in a project aimed at economic development in rural areas.
