Echo Lakes Foods clears major hurdle to rebuild
BURLINGTON - The owner of a plant that burned down this past January has cleared a major hurdle in a plan to rebuild.
The owner of Echo Lakes Foods has now received the financial backing it needs, including incentives from local governments.
"And he's now clear as far as the financial aspect to start rebuilding," said Burlington Mayor Bob Miller.
Some of the people put out of work by the fire have found jobs elsewhere, including with other plants operated by Echo Lakes.
