Economic development summit set for July 15 in Dayton

By Vanesa Brashier,

Liberty County is hosting its next quarterly economic development summit on July 15, 11 a.m. to 2 p.m., at the Dayton Community Center, 801 S. Cleveland St., Dayton.

Some of the topics to be discussed include the county’s plans to build a new multi-purpose/judicial center and a new law enforcement complex, the county’s plans to increase hurricane awareness and preparedness, and Union Pacific’s economic development plans.

“Union Pacific’s economic development group wants to see what they can do in aiding businesses that need rail service,” said Liberty County Judge Jay Knight.

The quarterly meetings have proven to be an effective way to pool the county’s resources and talent to promote the economic development of the entire county, according to Knight.

The public is invited to attend but an RSVP is needed to get a head count for seating, he said.

For more information on this meeting or to RSVP, Knight said to call the Dayton Community Development Corporation at 936-257-0055.
