About the pro­ject:

Tri-County Vanguard - - NEWS -

The fol­low­ing is from an as­sess­ment of the sea cu­cum­ber phar­ma­ceu­ti­cal pro­cess­ing fa­cil­ity that was pre­pared re­cently for Ar­gyle mu­nic­i­pal coun­cil.

• The pro­ject in­volves the con­struc­tion of a re­frig­er­a­tion and cook­ing fa­cil­ity for the byprod­uct of the Ocean Pride sea cu­cum­ber plant in Wedge­port.

• The first phase of con­struc­tion will have of­fice space, an en­closed area for cook­ing the prod­uct and a re­frig­er­a­tion space. In a sec­ond phase, there would be freezer space and a dryer added on lo­ca­tion.

• Re­frig­er­ated space will be used to store raw ma­te­rial un­til it is pro­cessed. It is ex­pected an ad­di­tional sep­a­rate freezer stor­age build­ing for stor­age of in­com­ing raw ma­te­ri­als on the site may be needed as the busi­ness de­vel­ops.

• It is in­tended to uti­lize the cur­rent waste ma­te­ri­als from the Ocean Pride sea cu­cum­ber fa­cil­ity in Wedge­port, with the goal of uti­liz­ing all of the Ocean Pride prod­ucts which are har­vested from the sea and also have the po­ten­tial for uti­liz­ing raw ma­te­rial prod­ucts from the sea from other pro­ces­sors to pro­duce nu­traceu­ti­cal/di­etary sup­ple­ments and re­lated prod­ucts.

and Kathy Bourque – who found them­selves on op­po­site sides in the fi­nal vote – per­haps best summed it up.

Al­bright called it a “dif­fi­cult de­ci­sion ... We’ve all been torn.” She sided with the res­i­dents. Bourque said hav­ing to choose one side over the other was “tear­ing my heart ... (but) I have con­fi­dence in Jules.”
