A plan by the Franklin County Area Development Authority to buy and convert the former Grove Worldwide Training Center into a conference center has hit a snag, an Authority member said Friday. Carol Henicle, executive director of the Greater Waynesboro Chamber of Commerce, said the cost of the $14 million project increased to $15 million because of federal regulations governing wages for workers building the project. The Authority is a government agency. The contractor has to pay workers at the prevailing wages set by the federal government, which are significantly higher than those paid by private contractors, Henicle said.
