For the next two years, the Cullman, Alabama region could gain some 50 jobs as part of Phase II of the construction work being done on the Cullman Duck River Dam reservoir, according to the Cullman Times.
The permit deadline to fill the dam is November of 2016, so officials with ASI Constructors, Inc. have already arrived in Cullman to increase hiring due to an accelerated work schedule. The company has constructed more than 100 dams and had the winning bid of $51.79 million for this project, which was $3 million less than the expected total for construction of the dam.
Multiple local contractors have already been hired for the project by ASI, boosting the local economy.
John Bower, the president of ASI, told the Cullman Times that he has hired multiple managerial positions already, with 22 more yet to be filled. Bower thinks there could be 50 jobs locally when the project is in its height.
“In the experiences we’ve had, revenue paid to contractors is recycled several times back into a community, through payroll and local spending,” Bower told the Cullman Times. “From our staff, we just want to say the City of Cullman has been a great client in helping us get established here very quickly.”
Others are happy that the project will boost the local economy outside of jobs because of fuel needed on-site as well as utilities such as electric and gas.
