Decision about Carbon Motors' future in Connersville expected soon

Connersville said a decision about a new Carbon Motors plant should be reached soon.

The new plant would bring 1,500 jobs but the federal government must approve a more than $310 loan for the plan to be possible.

The police car manufacturer wants to move into the old Visteon Plant in Fayette County.

According to our news partners at WIBC, Mayor Leonard Urban said Indiana’s congressmen have been pushing for the loans to go through.

Carbon Motors announced it was moving from Atlanta to Connersville two years ago.
