People's Bank and Trust Donates $15,000 to Christian County Economic Development Corporation to Begin Work on Changing Enterprise Zone Boundaries

People's Bank and Trust on Friday presented a check for 15-thousand dollars to the Christian County Economic Development Corporation, to pay for Phase One of consulting work to change the Christian County Enterprise Zone boundaries helping communities thru-out the county in economic development.


C-C-E-D-C is the governing body for the Zone in the county.


P-B-T President and CEO John Gardner said a change in state law governing solar projects, allowed ongoing solar projects in the county to no longer need to be included in the Zone.



Gardner said the donation will help spur economic growth in Christian County.



C-C-E-D-C Treasurer Mike Blakeman said the P-B-T donation would ultimately benefit all communities in the county due to the boundary change.



Taylorville Mayor Bruce Barry stated the change in boundries will help grow the city as well as other communities in the county.



Jeff Torricelli of Rochester is again the consultant to C-C-E-D-C in the Enterprise Zone boundary change.
