Corinth business incubator wants

Published 12:00 am Tuesday, December 8, 2009

The Northeast Mississippi Business Incubator wants money to improve its electrical, heating and air systems, but the officials aren’t ready to make the funds available.

Corinth aldermen tabled a request for the money and recommended that officials seek stimulus funding.

Incubator Executive Director Ray McClelland said a contractor quoted a price of about $2,000. But city building inspector Philip Verdung believes more extensive work is needed at a cost of about $5,600.

The incubator is jointly operated by Corinth and Alcorn County. While the county annually budgets a specific dollar amount to support the incubator, the city has generally said it would be responsible for maintenance and upkeep.
