Four County CEO Mitchell Keel stated, “We have outgrown our current facilities and we need more room to meet the growing needs of our industry and expectations of our members. The new facilities and additional acreage will allow Four County EMC to move forward efficiently for many years to come. Our members deserve and can expect the same excellent service they have become accustomed to from Four County, we will just be operating from a new location.”

Planning for the building began several years ago according to Four County EMC Board President, Franklin Williams. “We realized many years ago that the district offices needed to be replaced. We looked at a lot of locations and believe we have found the best place for us to deliver quality service to our membership.”

The new office buildings will replace their fifty-five-year-old district offices located on East Broad Street in Elizabethtown and N. Sycamore Street in Rose Hill; projected completion for the new district office buildings is fall of 2020.
