Shane Frye, Blackwell Chamber of Commerce introduced Attorney Dan McMahan to answer any questions on behalf of the Blackwell Industrial Authority in regards to the possible building of an Ethanol Plant in Blackwell.


Lynn Courtney asked if any new taxes would come from additional advalorem taxes placed on the citizens of Blackwell and will the contamination issues in Blackwell be a problem. McMahan informed Courtney that the plant should trigger spinoff investments and the hope is that the value around the plant will increase.  McMahan did not believe the contamination issue to be a factor.


Jessica Pepper asked if Blackwell Industrial Authority owned all 1,120 acres of land, who the land was purchased from and how much it cost.  McMahan advised that all land has been optioned but not closed but he did not have a list of who land was to be purchased from or the amounts.


Greg Deffner asked who picks up the bill for improvements on the railroad lines, water lines, etc., if the company defaults.  McMahan responded by saying that if the company should default the improvements would still be there, the bond holders will only have a right to any increment revenues generated by the company. 


There being no other questions or comments, hearing ended.  No Board action taken at this time.
