A popular breakfast gathering will explore the state of manufacturing across the Livingston County at an upcoming meeting.

October’s Good Morning Livingston event will feature 3 speakers from Livingston County who will share projects they are working on, what residents can anticipate in the manufacturing field moving forward, and the responsibilities their businesses face.

John Hafner of Competitive Power Ventures will speak on a proposed natural gas power plant that could be built in Handy Township.

And Jay Howie of Brivar Construction will discuss challenges they have faced and how they have overcome them while staying within timelines and budgets.
