ALCOA and County reach settlement

Monday, May 6, 2013 — The Stanly County Commission met Monday evening to work through a full agenda, not to mention at last agreeing to a settlement with ALCOA and APGI.

Commissioners held a vote Monday night and an agreement was passed with a vote of three to two, with Commissioners Lindsey Dunevant and Tony Dennis voting against the settlement.

“This agreement provides significate investment in economic development and ensures that Stanly County will have long-term access to clean and affordable water, which is essential to our future growth. We are ready to move forward in a positive direction with ALCOA that will benefit Stanly County residents for years to come,” said Chairman Gene McIntyre.

The Economist famously created the Big Mac index in 1986 to see which currencies were overvalued. It started as a joke. Now, as the magazine proudly notes, it's a subject of academic study.
