11-15-04 – SEDCO has approved an incentive package for Tyson Fresh Meats. The package offers the meat company $3 million in incentives. If Tyson accepts the deal, the company would bring 1500 new jobs to the area.

Tyson would operate in the old Oscar Meyer if the plan is accepted. The plant is already owned by Tyson and would become a major meat manufacturing plant.
