Jason Jones, Kentucky Lake Economic Development committee board chair, opened up September’s Kentucky Lake Chamber of Commerce breakfast by discussing the current and future economic development occurring within Marshall County. The county is very diverse in its economic developments, noted Jones, and KLED plans to continue opening up economic opportunities for new and existing businesses.

KLED is actively seeking to keep business and industry growing and have partnered with the Next Move Group to facilitate a nation-wide search for an economic development director to help benefit the community, who would ideally begin their duties at the start of the new year. The board is also looking to involve Marshall County business owners as KLED partners, stating being able to hear community voices is pivotal for making business-centered improvements.
