Decatur City Council said goodby to 2010 Tuesday night with some moves which will get 2011 off to a good start.
The actions involved New Prime, a division of Prime, Inc, of Springfield, Missouri, which will construct a new building in Industrial Park III as it enters into an agreement with Bunge North America to provide transportation and logistic services, mainly truck trailer washing.
Jay Gould, who has spent some 45 years working with local farmers, will be stepping down as executive director of the Farm Services Agency (FSA) office in Decatur after December 30. He was given a big sendoff during a five-hour open house in the FSA office on Tuesday.
Large numbers of visitors stopped in to congratulate and to thank him, plenty of refreshments were available, and lots of old photographs and other memorabilia from more than four decades of public service were on display.
