JBS USA Investment Upgrades Beardstown Marina
As a river town, having a full-service marina area means enhanced quality of life for residents, and a tourism draw for the community. Specifically, the JBS USA’s $310,000 portion of the $1 million total budget will allow for the addition of camping spots in the high-water area, cottages to rent, a playground, gazebos and rescue equipment, making this a much-improved attraction in Beardstown. Overall, the project will also include better boat access, camping spots, restrooms, a pavilion and kayak launch.
Partner: City of Beardstown
Completion Date: Completed
As Mayor of the city of Beardstown, I am so excited about the investment JBS has extended to our community's future during this pandemic. The City Council and myself look forward to working together with JBS.
