Jennings, whose city hosted officials from around the county at a breakfast event, did not specify as to the nature of the announcement. But he did say he hoped it would come sooner rather than later.
“I hope we can make a big announcement in the next 3-6 months,” he said. “We have the opposite problem of some places: we have the infrastructure — Alabama Power has helped us, and we have Trussville Utilities and the Moody GUS (sewer board) that are good partners. We’re just limited on space.
“We hope what space we have will start filling up, and we’re very proud of that.”
Jennings also commended the local representatives, as well as the Red Cross, for their help following the recent tornadoes that damaged the city.
“When we had our tornado damage, (Peggy Mann of the Red Cross) was the first person I saw when I was out,” Jennings said. “Before 10 a.m., I had already received two calls, from (congressmen) Spencer Bachus and Mike Rogers, asking if there was anything they could do to help.
“I thank them. I believe those two guys are up there in Washington trying to help us out.”
