Two-county economic development group meets in Elizabeth

"This whole project is toward trying to bring jobs to our area," said Dan McDonald, President of the group. McDonald said a two-county group can access more money for economic development. It is expected the group will eventually hire a full-time economic development director.

Scruggs reviewed requirements to help make the group functional, including the need to become a Certified Development Community and how to qualify for local economic development grants. Members of the organization are required to take training for economic development.
