Senator Andrew Jones Announces Major Grant for City of Attalla, Which Will Help Bring New Jobs to Area

Senator Andrew Jones, earlier this week, announced some great news for the City of Attalla and Etowah County.

Jones revealed that the City was recently awarded a major grant, in the amount of $200,000 – to help provide water upgrades for the new Koch’s Feed Mill; the mill will provide 28 new full-time jobs to the area with an annual payroll of around one million dollars, resulting in a total investment of some $55 million in Etowah County.

A Koch Foods spokesperson says the Attalla facility, which has been designed with the most technologically advanced features available will support their expanded processing plant in Gadsden.  The ground-breaking at the state-of-the-art grain storage and distribution facility was held last November (November 5th, 2019).

The 130-acre feed mill has the ability to hold more than one billion bushels of corn – served directly by rail.
