Barnesville, MN (WDAY TV) - The City of Barnesville loves to lay out the "welcome mat" to new businesses coming town, and recently, the small Clay County town has been busy.

The economic development authority has provided incentives to lure an east coast tire distributor to the city's commercial park.

State grant money helped with bringing roads and utilities in to the site.

The Buffalo Watershed District has a new home, and the Rothsay Farmers elevator worked with the city and state to buy a piece of property for a state of the art fertilizer plant on the drawing board.

Karen Lauer, Barnesville Econ. Development Director: β€œAnd really that is the key, Barnesville is proactive in understanding what you the business owner needs.”

The $3.3 million fertilizer plant will be put up next spring in Barnesville.
