The city of Horn Lake board of alderman made a bold move Tuesday night, hiring a new economic development consultant.

In a 5 to 2 vote Alderman voted to hire former Southaven Mayor Greg Davis.

“We need him to help bring in economic development into our community”.

He has a proven and successful track record

of developing communities, said alderman Charlie Roberts.

Roberts made the motion to hire Davis.

Davis will start with the city as a volunteer consultant but Roberts believes it will turn into a permanent paid

position before long.

” I believe the new development he brings in will more than pay for any future salary”, Roberts said.

You may remember Greg Davis was the driving force in the successful growth of the City Of Southaven

during his tenure as mayor.

As far as Davis’s past legal problems, Roberts said,

“Davis was vindicated and was found not guilty, why

wouldn’t we take advantage of his skills and ability to

recruit for our city.

Davis starts work Wednesday.
