POCAHONTAS β€” Officials in Randolph County have signed an agreement with Peco Foods Inc. allowing up to $135 million in revenue bonds for a new poultry plant in northeast Arkansas.

The Jonesboro Sun reports that Randolph County Judge David Jansen signed the agreement at a public meeting Thursday. Peco Foods Chief Operating Officer Benny Bishop attended the meeting but declined to offer details of the project.
