Altec Donates Money for Baseball Fields at New County Park
Altec Industries has given Yancey County a $135,000 donation towards new fenced ball fields at Cane River Park to be ready for kids this spring. Yancey County Manager Nathan Bennett said that the work would take place over the next 60 days and that the project calls for installing three baseball fields and 3000 feet of six foot high chain link fence. The board approved a bid from Asheville Fence of $125,000 for the fencing project. Altec Industries, based in Birmingham Ala., provides more than 400 jobs at its state of the art facility in Burnsville.
