SUMMIT, Miss. (AP) - Summit Mayor Percy Robinson says an unnamed company seeking to move into a vacant building owned by Pike County will hire around 60 employees.

The Enterprise-Journal reports that Robinson made the comments Monday at a Summit Town Council meeting where the council selected Dungan Engineering to perform engineering work related to $600,000 in federal community development money that Summit will use to upgrade a road and rail spur near the former Genco-Kellwood building.

The state will also loan Summit $125,000 to help pay for those improvements.

Pike County supervisors in August approved a $60,000-per-year lease agreement with the company for the building.

Town officials are in negotiations with the company. Officials have released few details about the prospect, citing confidentiality agreements.
