WEST POINT, Miss. (AP) — Trucks have begun hauling away rubble from the former Sara Lee plant in West Point as the site’s owner seeks a new use for the property.
A local newspaper reports the 70-acre tract along Eshman Avenue is majority-owned by Ohio-based Kohart Surplus and Salvage.
The company bought the land in 2010 and is sorting out scrap it can sell as it works to rehabilitate the site to market it for industrial or commercial use.
West Point Mayor Robbie Robinson and Chief Administrative Officer Randy Jones say no specific business has yet indicated interest in the tract.
