What about Mitchell County's Role?

Most everyone on this forum agrees about the state of things in town but what about the County's role in all this? What exactly does the Board of Economic Development do? I don't see much "development" around here. Two new businesses (one of which never has any cars) and a small hotel.

I don't blame them now but why wouldn't they help Zane or Shutt when they came with projects.

"BOED" caused a huge amount of trouble for the main street board a few years ago because they wouldn't bow down to a certain person's demands. They just took the funds promised and left the program hanging dry.

We need new county commissioners almost as badly as we need new council members. Why don't good ones run? That job pays.

Living large, may have misunderstood your remark, its very tricky when writing your thoughts, what you mean and how it is taken can be two different meanings, if Im wrong about your response, sorry!

Really, what has the BOED done for this City?? Nada. But with all the money the County has, I suppose there isn't much initiative...
