A lumber operation with the potential for 27 new jobs is planned for the William D. Field-Dickson County Industrial Park. Mayor Bob Rial announced at Monday night’s county commission work session that Mike Lewis, formerly of Middle Tennessee Lumber, wants to purchase property in the industrial park to build a 50,000-square-foot facility. The mayor proposed the county transfer 16.48 acres located between Bridgestone and Metrican on Warren G. Medley Drive to the Dickson County Industrial Development Board, which can then sell the property to Lewis for $250,000. Rial said the money would be turned over to the county and he proposed using it to pay on the loan for the development of the pad-ready sites that are to be the new location of the still unidentified Project Falcon. That money combined with a $100,000 payment in the proposed 2013-14 budget presented Monday will reduce the loan to $375,000, which is the amount pledged through a coalition of the city of Dickson, Water Authority of Dickson County, Greater Dickson Gas Authority, Dickson Electric Service and Dickson County Chamber of Commerce. Rial said the agreement will include a stipulation that Lewis begin construction within a year of finalizing the sale or the county will have the option of buying back the property. The commission recommended approval of the land transfer at its May 20 meeting and the industrial development board is scheduled to vote on the sale to Lewis May 24.
