Geneva City Council members have said they want to ensure all the ingredients for a Pillsbury manufacturing plant along Kautz Road mix with positive results for residents.

During their first look at the project at a development committee meeting Thursday night, council members questioned several aspects of the proposal, including how much it will help the tax base.
