FIDA Director Resigns

STAFF REPORT

The executive director of the area's Industrial Development Association bid farewell to Fulton County last Thursday after accepting a similar employment opportunity in nearby Blair County.

Wendy Melius joined the Fulton Industrial Development Association (FIDA) in 2002 and immediately found herself in the midst of the ongoing preparations for the completion of the South Central Business Park located off Fulton Drive. Touted as her biggest undertaking, the business park currently hosts six businesses.

Melius stated the decision to leave FIDA was "hard" but based on "personal and financial reasons." With work already begun for a study to determine the feasibility of constructing a second business park in county, Melius stated she will remain available to trouble shoot and lend assistance where necessary.
