May Brothers, a Bedford County contractor, wants to build seven townhouse units on Hooper Road. The proposed housing units would be located next to the contractor's shop on Hooper Road and provide housing for the company's seasonal laborers.
According to David St. John, president of May Brothers, the company hires seasonal laborers who work for the company from March through December doing primarily construction labor.
"We hire hire about 20 seasonal employees," he said.
The workers come from Mexico and St. John said that they are here legally on work visas.
