LEDC focused on attracting new business

By Stacy Burt

With great incentive packages, a strong workforce and room to build and expand, Liberty stands out as a unique community in the metro area for attracting businesses, according to Rick McDowell, executive director of the Liberty Economic Development Corp.

McDowell addressed members of the Liberty Area Chamber of Commerce during a lunch meeting June 24 at Belvoir Winery, providing a portrait of how the city looks on current and anticipated growth.

McDowell is charged with identifying businesses that are starting from the ground up and those interested in relocating, and persuading them to consider doing business in Liberty.

“We have been on a pretty good roll, with Ford, LMV and RockTenn,” said McDowell. “The various things we’ve had happen here, I just want that to continue.” More here.
