The Christian County Economic Development Corporation board of directors held their quarterly board meeting on Friday afternoon at People's Bank and Trust in Taylorville, and learned that further progress has been made toward obtaining a matching grant of some 537-thousand dollars, to build infrastructure at the new Taylorville Industrial Park.

Executive director Mary Renner said the Economic Development Administration office in Chicago notified her Thursday afternoon, that the agency had sent the local entity what they called a "letter of interest."  Renner told Regional Radio News what she and the county economic development corporation is doing from here.

Renner added she's been told that once the additional information is submitted, the application will either be processed further, or declined.
