OAKWOOD - Visitors came from around the world to FAE USA's recent open hosue and anniversary celebration in Oakwood.<br />
Oakwood Mayor Lamar Scroggs and representatives of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce were also on hand for the ceremony.<br />
The event was highlighted by an equipment demonstration. At the first demo site, a rock crusher worked five inches deep to crush rocks and grind asphalt. The Perma-Zyme product demonstration showed how the grinded asphalt could be recycled to rebuild a road.<br />
The second demo site was in a wooded area, showcasing various FAE attachments for brush cutting and mulching.<br />
"We are continuously developing new products to satisfy the needs of our customers" said Giorgio Carera, CEO of FAE USA.
This small city in northeast Hall County (estimated 2013 population of 2,847) wants to be ready for what’s coming; the Economic Development Council, an extension of the Greater Hall Chamber of Commerce wants to help them reach that point. Some fence-mending, however, might first be needed.
The Hall County SPLOST VII Citizens’ Review Committee met for the second time Monday afternoon at the Hall County Government Center, elected leaders and immediately began sharing their visions of the committee’s objectives.
