500 Revenue Employees Could Get New Home

Posted: Updated:

    Governor Bryant could soon get a recommendation about where to house 500 employees who work for the department of revenue.

    A spokesman for the Department of Finance and Administration tells us a decision could come down by the middle of next week.  

    Six different developers submitted proposals.

    The three best options now being considered are the old WorldCom site, now known as south pointe business park in Clinton, the Landmark Center on Capitol Street in downtown Jackson and the old Diversified Technologies building in Ridgeland, which is owned by Ergon.

    The agency's current lease on an old metal building just south of Clinton runs out in June of 2014. The state pays more than $850,000 each year for the site.

    The issue has divided lawmakers at the state Capitol. This session the Senate voted to purchase the Landmark building. But the state House, which is headed by Speaker Philip Gunn, who represents Clinton, approved a measure to lease the south pointe site.
