About Us


The Butts County Industrial Development Authority is the primary point of contact for economic development activities in Butts County. The Development Authority was created through a local amendment to the Georgia Constitution and consists of a seven member volunteer board, appointed by the Butts County Commission. In addition, a seven-member board, the Development Authority of Butts County, was created by legislation. These two boards work together to support and enhance economic development in Butts County. Working with local, regional, state and national partners, the Development Authority works to encourage and promote economic development activity in Butts County, whether through the location of a new company or through the expansion of an existing facility. Businesses and industrial clients receive assistance in many areas of the development process including: Developed Industrial Sites, Available Industrial Buildings Low-cost Bond Financing, Ad Valorem Tax Liability, Permitting & Approval, Temporary Office Space, State and Local Incentives, Utilities, Workforce

The Development Authority meets monthly, generally on the second Friday of each month at 8:30 am at the Butts County Administration building. The public is welcome to attend Development Authority meetings.
