BRAWLEY — Officials with the under-construction beef-processing plant here have announced a second delay in the start of operations, stating the plant is now expected to open Dec. 10.
Initially, Brawley Beef LLC officials had expected the multi-million dollar facility to open in October. That date was then pushed back until Dec. 3.
On Thursday, Greg Beck, president and chief operating officer of Brawley Beef, said more construction needs to be done, forcing the weeklong delay.
Beck said of the Dec. 10 start of operations, "It's for real. It's like a rock. Bear with me. It's going to turn on the 10th."
