Major Economic Announcement Planned in Jerseyville

Story by WBGZ Radio

What is being described as a major regional economic development in Jersey County will be unveiled in a couple of weeks. Dignitaries on the list of those planning to attend the March 2nd event are several elected officials on the local, state, and federal level, and representatives from a financial institution and Kansas City Southern Railroad.

Various stakeholders have been working on a proposed rail hub for Jerseyville for a couple of years, but the press release does not specifically say that is what will be introduced. The information does, however, say this will be a multi-million dollar development project, funded by Stonemont Financial Group and in partnership with the Jerseyville Economic Development Council and Kansas City Southern Railroad that will impact the entire Midwest economy as well as the logistics and commerce industries on a national scale.
