Tyson Foods, Inc., is putting a proposed $320 million project near Tonganoxie on hold. In an open letter from Tyson to the Leavenworth County community emailed Tuesday, group president of poultry Doug Ramsey wrote that the company is delaying the process in light of Monday’s Leavenworth County Commission decision to rescind intent to issue $500 million in industrialized bonds for the project. The letter talks about Tyson’s 5,700 “team members” who are proud to live and work in Kansas and an annual economic impact of $2.4 billion in the state and reasons Tyson thought Leavenworth County was a good fit. But the letter eventually explained the status of the project.
