Bentley continues jobs push, awards $200,000 for commercial development in Winfield

Posted: Updated:

In an effort to create jobs and help commerce along I-22, Governor Robert Bentley has awarded a Community Development Block Grant to the city of Winfield.

The grant will help with the development of a commercial complex for three businesses employing 33 people. The complex will be home to Winfield Neurology and Family Medicine, Huatulco Mexican Restaurant and Tabs Party Rentals.

This the second CDBG Bentley has awarded to a Marion County municipality in the last two weeks: He recently awarded a $200,000 grant to the town of Brilliant to help bring 20 new jobs to a manufacturing plant. In November, Bentley also supported another development along I-22 with the award of $300,000 to the city of Jasper to assist in the construction of a commercial business complex adjacent to the interstate that would employ 80 people.
