Lengthening of road OK’d to keep Jett
Mars Road, which runs in front of the Mars Petcare plant, will be extended by the City of Clinton across S. 13th Street to accommodate an addition to the Jett Distributing warehouse.
The Clinton City Council voted unanimously for the extension, which was requested by City Manager Steve Hewitt as a way to keep the company in Clinton. Cost of the extension was estimated by Hewitt at approximately $15,000, with $5,000 of that coming from a “mini-grant” provided by Public Service Company of Oklahoma. Street Department employees also will furnish some labor as needed.
