Was Columbia considered for this new business?

How does a city go about finding out when new businesses are looking for a place to put their business?

Who gets involved when a town is being considered?

What makes a town right for a new business to want to locate there?

Inquiring minds want to know. - Maury Lewis
Thanks. Perhaps the most obvious difference is that the people of Marion Co., KY, are willing to pay the upfront costs of securing industry. They have a payroll tax and a huge - by Adair and even Taylor and Russell County standards - economic development budget, and a highly sophisticated business recruiting system. Perhaps there are other reasons those involved with Economic Development can cite. -EW
