“I am ready to tender my resignation from the board,” Alvis said. “I don’t want anything to stand in the way of bringing jobs to Holmes County.”

Qualico Steel is supposed to bring 25 jobs with the new business, and expects it could hire as many as 100 people by next year, Alvis said.

“So we’re basically at the same place with this deal, waiting on a contract,” Riviere said.

Alvis said that was correct, but he expects the commissioners to have a contract in hand on Oct. 12.

“Hasn’t this been ongoing for two years?” asked commissioner Frances Williams.

Alvis said Qualico Steel’s interest in the property has waxed and waned over the years.

The commissioners also decided to hold a special meeting on Oct. 23 to discuss the Raper Property.
