DOTHAN, Ala. (WTVY) - Around 50 jobs are coming to Dothan with a salary of around $16 an hour for employees right out of high school.
Houston County Commission approved tax abatements for construction of a refrigerated storage unit. It will be located on Technology Drive and Westgate Parkway. Construction is expected to start as soon as possible.
Commissioner Brandon Shoupe says this is a first for the area.
"We can provide economic opportunities for our people and also benefit the country. There could be more companies like this moving to Dothan," said Shoupe.
The Dothan Area Chamber of Commerce says there is room for expansion, which can bring even more jobs in the near future.
