Cadiz-Trigg County Economic Development Commission Director Sharon Butts and Chairman Jim Wallace said the commission’s main focus has traditionally been more on industries and on the retail sector.
EDC Board Member Don Leibee said he didn’t think it matters who brings a hotel or restaurant into the community, and went on to say that citizens in the community can contact outside businesses to bring them here.
Grow Trigg Organizer Dan Quick said the group’s main goal in repealing prohibition was to help the local economy, and added that the group would like the EDC to consider them as an asset to the community.
Grow Trigg President Ken Culwell said the group had three phases in their plan – the petition phase, the election phase and now preparation of an ordinance and the contacting of hotels and restaurants.
Culwell added that after the ordinance is passed, he would like to contact businesses to bring them into Trigg County.
In other business, Butts talked about an upcoming Chicago consultant event that includes an equipment and food show exposition.
She also talked about a regional industry appreciation event on Wednesday, Dec. 2, wherein Kentucky jockey Pat Day will be speaking.
