Industrial Development Authority
The Industrial Development Authority was developed to create jobs by recruiting new industries and assisting existing industries to stay financially healthy. The IDA has the authority to issue Industrial Revenue Bonds and to be a conduit for bond financing. The IDA was established by Georgia Legislation in 1974.
The IDA meets on the first Thursday of each month at 3:30 p.m. at the Habersham County Medical Center, West Wing Board Room. There are some called meetings during the year.
Qualification for membership would be a sincere interest in the economic development of Habersham County. A background experience of economic development through the Chamber of Commerce would be ideal.
Board members are required to complete at least eight hours of training on development and redevelopment programs within the first 12 months of their appointment to such authority.
Term: 6 years, staggered.
