Middendorf says it's a win-win situation when you can remove an invasive species from Illinois waters and stimulate the economy. The company is building a new facility in Griggsville and hiring 60 new people. Middendorf says that's good news for Pike County because it's on a poverty watch list. They're accepting applications for administrative, clerical, and processing positions. They'll start hiring after the first of the year.
