Owenton Mayor David “Milkweed” Wotier says much of 2017 is contingent upon Itron and explained what may be in store for the next year.
“I’m anxious to see what Itron is going to be doing,” Wotier said. “We have not scheduled a meeting yet, but they said they needed three months; which is January. I am not fearful that we won’t get a factory, my concern is getting one that is up to par with Itron, with the capacity for 450 employees. Maybe not exactly 450, but I want a high number of employees.”
