Cash for Cooper project still on supervisors' minds

Shortly after Lauderdale County supervisors convened for their biweekly work session Thursday, District 5 Supervisor Ray Boswell threw the issue of money for Meridian's Cooper Development project on the table.
Boswell asked the board, "How are we going to find the money for the Cooper project?"
It's been reported that if the county cannot find $1 million in its budget to fund a $6 million-$8 million interchange on Interstate-20/59 the city has offered to allow the county to tap into its line of credit.
Over the ring of Boswell's cell phone, County Administrator Rex Hiatt said "until the board decides on a final dollar amount no action will be taken."
In June, the city turned down the county's $500,000 offer to help fund construction of the interchange to serve the proposed Cooper retirement community.
