WALKER COUNTY GOVERNMENT IS TAKING A STEP TOWARD ADDING JOBS IN THE AREA… WITH A PLAN TO INSTALL FIBER OPTICS AT ITS INDUSTRIAL PARKS. 

THE FIBER OPTIC UTILITY IS BEING INSTALLED BY SUMMERVILLE-BASED "PARKER FIBERNET"… AND WILL ALLOW FUTURE USERS TO ENJOY ALMOST UNLIMITED DATA CAPACITY.  THAT MEANS EXTREMELY HIGH-SPEED INTERNET.

COUNTY OFFICIALS HOPE WILL ATTRACT A VARIETY OF NEW BUSINESS VENTURES.  THE INDUSTRIAL PARKS, WHICH TOTAL ABOUT 500 ACRES IN AREA, ARE LOCATED OFF HIGHWAY 27 JUST NORTH OF LAFAYETTE AND AT ROCK SPRING.
