The City of Fayette received a grant from the Alabama Department of Transportation that will aid with the resurfacing of Martin Luther King Drive and 10th Street. The grant, in the amount of $250,000, was announced last week by Governor Kay Ivey. The grant is the second round of special grants that have been awarded to counties and municipalities throughout the state as part of the “Rebuild Alabama Act.”
Governor Kay Ivey has awarded a $500,000 grant to upgrade a manufacturing plant in the City of Fayette and preserve 186 jobs. The Community Development Block Grant (CBDG) awarded to the City of Fayette will provide infrastructure needed for the expansion of Showa Best Glove Inc. The company manufactures gloves made of latex and similar materials for use in the medical, industrial, fishing and food industries.
