ABERDEEN, Miss. (AP) - Local governments in a northeast Mississippi city are selling a building to a Georgia company that plans a 150-job factory.

WCBI-TV reports that the city of Aberdeen voted Tuesday night to sell the building to Bradbury Logistics & Services for $75,000. The company makes steel building components.

Monroe County supervisors, who jointly own the building with the city, could approve their share of the sale Friday.

Aberdeen’s city-owned utility has said it will offer Bradbury a reduced electricity rate.

The building is being vacated by auto parts maker Holley Performance Products. Bradbury would repair part of the building’s roof. Bradbury has said it plans to invest $1 million and hire 150 people in phases by 2020.



The Mississippi Development Authority has said the state agency isn’t providing any assistance.
