Christian County Economic Development Corporation Executive Director Mary Renner gave the Christian County Board an update of ongoing county projects at Tuesday night’s board meeting. Renner says the county has big economic growth potential in the coming years.
Renner told the board the federal grant for Taylorville’s industrial park finally gives the community something it has not had the last 14 years for companies looking to come to town.
Renner says the goal is to have infrastructure completed for the park by the end of 2019. Then, the job will turn to attracting businesses looking to expand or relocate.
The board also approved allocating additional money for the courthouse air conditioner project and discussed elected office holder salaries at Tuesday’s meeting. Those salaries will likely be brought up again at the next board meeting, scheduled for April 17th at the Christian County Courthouse.
