Purchase Area Industrial Park


  An advisory committee for the Purchase Area Regional Industrial Park has tabled discussion of more infrastructure projects until they find a tenant to curb possible extraneous spending.

Park Chairman Tony Goodman said last week’s decision is wise financially because the park officials don’t know the future tenant’s specific needs.


Mayfield business owner Dale Usher has announced he will run for Graves County Judge/Executive in 2014.

Current Judge/Executive Tony Smith will not run for re-election next year. Smith has held the position since 1986.

In a press release, Usher said he understands the many components needed for economic growth in Graves County, and believes one way to spur economic development is to rekindle interest in the Purchase Area Industrial Park.
