By Frank Lewis -

Kentucky Governor Matt Bevin will be in Greenup County, specifically Wurtland, Kentucky Wednesday afternoon at 1 p.m. to make a major economic development announcement.

It is not known if it is related to a 12:30 p.m., meeting in Greenup, called by the Kentucky Economic Development Finance Authority.

Bevin’s press secretary Woody Maglinger told the Daily Times that “The General Assembly had set aside $15 million for a potential prospect that was hoping to locate in Kentucky,” Maglinger said. “This is in regards to that big announcement that we’re hoping will bring more than $1 billion to northeast Kentucky in the tri-state there with Ohio and West Virginia as well. So that’s what he’ll be announcing tomorrow (Wednesday) afternoon at 1 (p.m.) o’clock at the McConnell House.”

The average salary is reported to be $75,000. No other information will be available until the new conference.
