2012 was a busy year for Cadiz and Trigg County as several expansions were announced, but Mayor Lyn Bailey is hopeful that 2013 will be just as big for the local economy. Mayor Bailey, who recently spoke with WKDZ's Alan and Allen, says a big event last year were the multiple announcement from Transcraft.
He adds that one thing often forgotten is the farmers in the county and their impact.
Bailey says one of the first big events of 2013 will be the announcement of the new Cadiz Police Chief following the resignation of Hollis Alexander, who was sworn in last week as Trigg County Judge Executive.
A reception for Alexander will be held Thursday afternoon from 3-5pm at the Renaissance Center on Jefferson Street to thank him for his service to the city for numerous years. Mayor Bailey says he hopes that he and Alexander can work together this year to better explain the proposed restaurant tax.
He explains that studies show nearly 80 percent of the profit from the tax will come from those traveling through the area or staying for recreational entertainment.
