The Department of Economic Development, working with the Economic Development Authority, is in the process of creating a more attentive Business Retention Program that will enable the department to meet the needs of existing businesses in the county. This program will focus on assessing the needs and barriers of existing business. Those needs and barriers will then be addressed to ensure business survival or growth. The program will monitor changing marketplace dynamics so that policy makers and community leaders can make decisions that can decrease threats or enhance opportunities, and enhance community economic growth.

However, should you have any questions, concerns, or issues please contact:
