Initiate a Strong and Strategic Economic Development Plan
We enjoy an overwhelming wealth of resources including oil, gas, lumber, and agriculture, not to mention the recent realization that we are located in the middle of the biggest shale gas field in the world. These resources have been the cause of our growth and success as a community and with proper management, will continue to stimulate our local economy and provide us with prosperity. We must be actively connecting with the industry leaders to ensure that we are seen as "the place to be" for business success and prosperity. At the same time, we need to ensure that local businesses are indeed experiencing a business friendly environment and that, while we appreciate their contributions to our community, that our expectations of them are fair and equitable.
