(PORT ANGELES)-- The Port Angeles City Council passed a one-year contract in which the Clallam County Economic Development Council will make modifications to its business practices that are geared to demonstrate a positive return on investment.
In the contract, the city specified three things they wanted to see done.
“The first is completion of a strategic plan,” said city community and economic development director Nathan West. “The second is working and engaging our local businesses. Finding out what those businesses need, what can help them in the form of ability to expand and grow in our community; and then also to look at marketing opportunities and meetings with new businesses that are outside the area that might help benefit the local supply chain needs as well as bring new businesses in the town provide that provide well-paid wages to those in the local workforce.”
West stressed that this contract is a work in progress, and that the E.D.C. is open to new input, particularly from the city of Port Angeles city council.
The E.D.C. serves as a resource for businesses, and will typically assist business owners with such issues as, site identification and selection, business expansion and retention support, workforce training information and programs, intergovernmental coordination for large complex projects, business planning and financing, and other business related matters.
