Norwalk officials continue celebrating landing of Borgers

New $60 million facility will stand on 27 acres and create 230 jobs.

Norwalk competed against 60 other communities for the right to land Borgers USA Corp.'s newest manufacturing facility, Mayor Rob Duncan told council during its recent meeting.

Duncan said if city officials were keeping city council in the dark about certain developments, it's because word leaking out about Norwalk being in the running could've jeopardized the Maple City's changes of landing Borgers.

Duncan lauded Norwalk Economic Development Corp. executive director Ellen Heinz for her hard work in luring Borgers. She put in many hours during days, nights and her vacation time to make sure a Norwalk location became a reality, Duncan said.

"What a bright and shining moment for the city of Norwalk," Heinz said. "Thank you so much, city council for your support."

Borgers' new $60 million facility will stand on 27 acres in Norwalk's Firelands Industrial Park. The project will create 230 jobs.

OH come on Kat... here was a Purr fectly ideal time for you to point out that it was another great opportunity for a "photo opp" like you constantly dogged the past mayor for whenever she did her job!!!

earlduck

ok the mayor gets the blame for every job that didn't come to town and Ellen Heinz gets credit for one that does,seemms to be some holes in keeping score this way.
not to mention the second in command at police dept watches where he parks but doesn't care where anybody else parks.
maybe wrong religion

How many victory laps does the Mayor's office need in response to helping to fulfill a campaign promise?

Glad that Norwalk landed 230 jobs. But they need to build another building? What can't we find someone to occupy the ten vacant builds in town? Let's see there is Mayflower, Three IPC buildings,Epic, Jamieville and even Kmart.

Mr Duck...... let me try to teach you something here... now pay close attention here because i am only going to go over this once ..OK??....if you take a look at the comments, you will certainly see that each one has been separated for your convenience.. sorry about the big word.. I will give you a minute here to go ask your Mommy what that word means.....................................OK.. now lets just take your blog as an example.. do you see the first identification of the person who wrote it... in your case it has your user name..and on mine it has my user name.. so if you hate reading my blogs, please by all means when you see one that clearly says "Swiss Family" you can skip it.. if really does NOT hurt my feelings in the least...Although I do try to dumb it down as much as possible, especially for people like you... I know that there will still be people like yourself who will read it, and take away things that I never said, or implied in any way, shape or form, and I really can not do anything about that.. that is all on you..not me.... so take yourown advice.. you say that nobody reads my blogs, yet you seem to know what I say, so you are either a hypocrite, or a liar.. and I say that with all due respect... and I would also like to point out on more FACT to you.. when you tell me that I need to...",roll the chair in and get another bag of chips and coke then spend the rest of the day at keyboard trying to sound intelligent".. may I point out that you would only know when and how often I am on here ,, if you were also on here too much as well... so enjoy your summer, little one.. and if you did pass, good luck to you entering into the next progressive year.. but more than likely, you will be repeating the year that you were in again last year, and just maybe the year before that.. but don't give up hope.. I think that once you get too big for the children s desk, they almost have to advance you...lololol
