Commissioners give New Hope Industries more time

Knox Pages - 07-19


MOUNT VERNON — CEO Dennis Eggerton gained what he said he needed most in relation to the sale of the New Hope Industries site: time. In Thursday's morning session, the county commissioners extended the vacate date from Dec. 1 to April 15, 2020. Commissioner Thom Collier told Knox Pages on Friday morning that the commissioners felt the extension was a good compromise and took New Hope to the end of its lease.
