Union City, TN – The Williams Sausage Company in Union City has been named the Deal of the Year for the 2017 Journal of Tax Credits Industry Award. The Award honors the project that best demonstrates a well-executed vision and measurable community impact as well as showing a commitment to establishing positive change in bringing more people and places into the economic mainstream. Williams will be presented the award at the New Markets Tax Credit Industry Conference in Chicago on October 19. The project was financed with federal New Markets Tax Credits, which incentivizes private capital investment into communities that are underserved by traditional sources of capital.

Governor Bill Haslam and the Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development presented ThreeStar awards at the 2016 Governor’s Conference on Economic and Community Development in Nashville in October.

“We enjoy working to make Obion County ThreeStar certified each year. The process creates opportunity for community collaboration, which leads to strong strategic partnerships and shared goals. The greatest benefit is the four percent discount grant match for each of our municipalities securing state and federal grants throughout the year.”, Lindsay Frilling, CEO of the Obion County Joint Economic Development Council.

HONOR WITH PRIDE — To be chosen as the Pride of Obion County is an honor to be proud of in itself. Mike Cox, founder and owner of Cox Oil Co., was selected from several nominees for the award this year because of his giving spirit and desire to help as many people as he possibly can. The Pride of Obion County luncheon to honor Cox was held midday Wednesday, September 14th, and drew a packed room. Presenting Cox with a plaque to commemorate the accomplishment was CornFest board member Kris Dunn.
