(WCBI)--New jobs may be headed to Louisville, along with the prospect of economic development.The City of Louisville received a 27 acre lot of forfeited land Wednesday (8-1) from the State.

Upon completion of the survey, Mayor Will Hill says they discovered the tax forfeited property held by the State. That's when the Secretary of State stepped in. Secretary of State, Delbert Hosemann was quoted saying, "Put real property back on the tax roll that's what we are about and we are selling property all over tax forfeited property of course been forfeit to the state after three years and we selling that back in Greensville we collect over 34,000 dollars for tax payers."

The extension of the current rail spur will provide access to a new and expanding business in Louisville.
