Statement from Coffey County Economic Development on the potential Tyson Poultry Processing Plant in Kansas. On September 25, the Coffey County Commission and myself, Stacy Haines, met in Executive Session to review requirements to see if Coffey County is eligible to submit a proposal. Criteria and specifications for this project are extremely specific and communities MUST be able to meet all requirements to be considered at all. Coffey County DID NOT meet enough of the criteria to apply for this project and did not submit a proposal for the project. Thank you, Stacy Haines Economic Development Director
