Mower County commissioners, the Development Corporation of Austin and officials with McNeilus Truck and Manufacturing need to keep working together to finalize a deal that would be beneficial to everyone involved.

Both sides are to be commended for their work thus far to helping make this idea a reality.

The facility would be located just off Interstate 90 near Dexter and would provide jobs to this area, along with tax revenue.

Anytime there's a chance to get more jobs in this area, it's welcome news. However, we understand that commissioners and the DCA are trying to negotiate the best possible situation that will benefit this area.

We encourage both sides to continue negotiating. We're confident that continued discussions will result in an agreement that will benefit all sides.
