The following statement is from Mayor Eric Bookmeyer, released Friday morning after it was announced Prestage Foods will not be coming to Mason City:

“I want to extend our best wishes to the Prestage family and their staff. They are tremendous people and I regret the result. There is a city in Iowa that is going to get a tremendous family company and community partner.”

“I am sincerely disappointed for our City, Corridor and Chamber staffs and partners that were so invested in this project. They really did an admirable job and gave it their all, along with all of our supporters. I wholeheartedly salute them.”

“I am also thankful for the three “ayes” and Mr. Schickel for having the courage to continue to seek solutions.”

“We have six great council members that will move forward together. We are already on to the next projects and will continue to sell Mason City as a great city in North Iowa.”
