Work continues on a Fayette County-wide Economic Development group. In a meeting held Thursday evening, Mayors from Vandalia, Brownstown, St. Elmo, St. Peter and Farina were on hand along with 4 members of the Ramsey Village Board, Fayette County Board Chairman Jeff Beckman and the County Board’s Economic Development Committee and the City of Vandalia’s Economic Development Committee. Also attending the meeting were several influential citizens to hear more on the work to create the private partnership to work on economic development for Fayette County. Vandalia Mayor Rick Gottman says he is pleased with the turnout and progress.
One of the major themes for the meeting was the entire county working together to bring economic development here. There is another meeting scheduled for Thursday, April 27th to continue the work and beginning to officially form the partnership and committees.
