Image Entry extends Georgiana contract

More good news arrived recently for the economy of Georgiana and Butler County.

It was recently announced that Image Entry had extended their contract for their Georgiana location.

Butler County Commission for Economic Development Director Ricky McLaney said the company had been around for a while and was pleased to see them stay.

&uot;They’ve been there for five years,&uot; said McLaney. &uot;They recently extended their contract for another five years.&uot;

McLaney said he hoped the extension would mean more jobs.

&uot;Hopefully we can get some more people down there,&uot; said McLaney.

Georgiana Mayor Lynn Watson said jobs would be on their way as stated by the contract.

&uot;We know there will be new jobs because of the new contract,&uot; said Watson. &uot;It requires them to handle more state stuff and they will probably have to add about 15 to 20 people.&uot;

Watson said the extension of the contract was huge for his town.

&uot;This was extraordinarily big,&uot; said Watson. &uot;They’re our biggest employer right now.&uot;

The Georgiana division of Image Entry employs anywhere from 80 to 100 people. However, during tax season those numbers often swell from 180 to 200 people.

Watson said Georgiana Image Entry handles taxes for the state.

&uot;They handle all the state income taxes,&uot; said Watson. &uot;All the state income tax you send to the state goes to Image Entry.&uot;

Image Entry handles Blue Cross Blue Shield claims as well.
