The Meriwether County Water and Sewerage Authority issued $15,345,000 of its water and sewerage revenue bonds on July 9, 2009. Gray & Pannell LLP acted as bond counsel to the Authority. The revenue bonds were issued to help finance a new water and sewerage system for the Authority. Because of growth in the north end of Meriwether County near I-85 and the Kia Automotive Plant, the County has taken a proactive approach to accomodate this growth and expand and improve water and sewerage service for all of the County. Gray & Pannell LLP began working with Meriwether County and the Authority in mid-2008 to structure and deliver the issue and was proud to be hired as bond counsel to the Authority for its first ever bond issue.
