DeFuniak Springs Economic Development Committee Meets October 12


It might have been one of the shortest meetings in history, according to DeFuniak Springs Economic Development Committee Chair Mac Work but quite a bit got done in.

The committee did have enough members for a quorum on Oct. 12 and voted for Work to be considered upon DeFuniak Springs City Council approval as the representative for the EDC on the board of the new Main Street program.

They also agreed to invite the executive director of the Community Reinvestment Act (CRA) program in Marianna, Fla. to a future meeting of the EDC to discuss the pros and cons of the program.

The EDC meetings are open to the public and meet the second Thursday of every month at city hall at 5:15 p.m. The next meeting is scheduled for Nov. 9, 2017.
