The grant is being requested for the purpose of providing needed sewer infrastructure, roadway improvements and drainage work to facilitate Girard Holdings Alabama, LLC’s construction of a new assembly plant at Red Bay’s West Franklin Regional Industrial Park.

As a member of the a Alabama Legislature job growth has always been and will continue to be a top priority of Rep Morrow, “As a member of the Alabama Legislature I fully endorse and support the funding of this project. As a citizen of the Red Bay area, I enthusiastically endorse and support the funding of this project. This project will provide badly needed jobs for our state and for northwest Alabama. When the application is received in your office, as a member of the Alabama Legislature, I request that you expedite this $250,000 grant so that construction can begin as quickly as possible!”

On September 26th, 2018 there was a public hearing for this project at the city hall in Red Bay. Below is the statement given by Rep. Johnny Mack Morrow at that meeting:

“For the last twenty-eight years I have worked very hard as a member of the Alabama

Legislature to bring about economic development to the state of Alabama and I ID 18. I am very proud that in my very first term as a Legislator, I was a co-sponsor for Governor Folsom ‘s incentive package that landed the Mercedes auto plant in Alabama. Tens of thousands of people are now employed within the automobile industry in Alabama because of this legislation. I was instrumental in securing the funding for the completion of the ARC Corridor V or Highway 24. ‘Throughout my twenty-eight years as a member of the Alabama Legislature I have helped secure ADECA funding for numerous projects for I IDI 8 and for Red Bay. I believe without question that economic development, for a city or region, is like a rising tide it raises all the ships in the harbor. “
