Central Georgia Tech announces workforce driven partnership with Enhancement Authority
MACON, Georgia (41NBC/WMGT) – Members of the Community Enhancement Authority met with residents over pizza on Thursday to update them on the Pleasant Hill Mitigation Plan.
Aside from plans for a green space in Pleasant Hill, Central Georgia Technical College announced its new partnership with the Enhancement Authority.
Chairman of the Enhancement Authority James Beverly says both they and Central Georgia Tech share a common interest of keeping the men who’ve been working on construction of houses in Pleasant Hill these past months employed.
“Look, we need to get them into a program so that when they leave they’ll have a skill. Certainly if we can get them into a technical trained certification program where you can do wiring, you can do plumbing and you can do HVAC, then we’ve actually just moved those guys forward,” Beverly said.
He says anyone looking for work can come to the site near 3rd and Ward any day at 8 AM and start immediately. The pay is $12.50 an hour.
