COMMENTARY: Why the Enterprise keeps focused on the rail center project

Enterprise Publisher Les Zaitz.

At the Enterprise, our job is to guard your interests.

Reporters question government authorities. They watch spending closely. And they seek public records to reveal facts and the truth.

That’s why we invest such effort in tracking work on the Treasure Valley Reload Center.

The project planned for just outside Nyssa is one of the biggest investments of public money – your money – to happen in Malheur County. The state is putting up $26 million, and the county has sunk millions more.

We want this to succeed.

This has potential for being a boon for the county’s ag industry. This has the potential to create new jobs you can raise a family on.

To succeed, this project has to be done right, with money . . .
