Don’t fret: Hy-Vee still coming

Staff report
Hy-Vee has delayed construction on its planned Jefferson store by about two months, reports Ken Paxton, executive director of the Greene County Development Corp.

The weather has played a role in the delay, according to Paxton.

Construction will now likely begin in August, he said.

The delay, however, doesn’t mean Hy-Vee is gearing up to bolt on Jefferson.

“Not a chance,” he said. “It’s 100 percent sure they’re coming.”

The city of Jefferson is about to start doing underground work at the site soon.

“People will be able to see construction soon,” Paxton said.
