Government

SRQ DAILY MONDAY BUSINESS EDITION MONDAY FEB 10, 2020

During the Board of County Commissioners meeting on Tuesday, February 4, the EDC of Sarasota County proudly accepted a Proclamation of Economic Development Week. Officially proclaimed February 9 – 15 2020, Economic Development Week is an event created throughout Florida communities by the Florida Economic Development Council (FEDC). The FEDC designed this initiative to celebrate the achievements of economic, workforce and community development practitioners, as well as raise the general public’s awareness of the importance of economic development for Florida communities and to deepen the understanding and appreciation of the work contributions to Florida’s business climate, job retention and growth, tax base and overall quality of life.

“We sincerely appreciate the county commission recognizing Economic Development Week and will spend the week highlighting the positive impacts that economic development and the associated work of our partners has on our businesses, friends, neighbors and children,” said Dave Bullock, Interim CEO of the EDC.

He continued, “Economic Development is about creating high paying career opportunities and increased investment in our community, understanding that the businesses support jobs whose wages ripple throughout our local community and benefit many. It is only possible through the support and collaboration of our county and municipal partners, higher education, workforce development agencies, and the network of service providers that contribute to a business climate second to none here in Sarasota County.”
