Silence forces Wayne County to abandon prospect

July 11, 2007
A Minneapolis-area startup apparently has withdrawn plans to build an $18 million processing plant in Richmond, but the Economic Development Corp. of Wayne County isn't sure because it can't reach the company.

Nevertheless, the development group says the company, Kelsie's Food and Dairy, must forfeit a $10,000 deposit it made on 26 acres because it didn't meet certain obligations within a 540-day window, according to The Palladium-Item. The obligations haven't been made public.

The group offered $1.9 million in incentives, and Kelsie's said it planned a 200-employee facility by 2010.
