The Delaware Sussex County Council announced this week that they would grant $125,000 toward water and sewage construction to assist Perdue Farms’ Agribusiness headquarters as it relocates to Delmar, Delaware from Salisbury, Maryland.  The town had requested help from the state and the county with costs.

The council president said it was money they were happy to give since Perdue’s Agribusiness headquarters will help create more jobs in the area.  “It’s 200 jobs.  That’s a big deal, 200 jobs is a big deal in Sussex County and they’re good paying jobs so they needed to get water and sewer out there.  Infrastructure and the town needs some help doing that and we’re glad to help participate in that,” said Sussex County Council President Michael Vincent.

The grant will also allow five other lots to be developed for commercial use, which could bring even more jobs to Sussex County.
