The Slaton Economic Development Corporation approved a contract with Leading EDG and met facilitator Taylor McAlpine Friday afternoon (Jan. 21) during its monthly meeting at the SEDCO building.
McAlpine, who was raised in Lubbock, gave a brief presentation of what he would do as a facilitator for business. “I’d love to get to know the community, either through conversation with (SEDCO) or getting tours and getting introduced to business owners or working inside the Chamber, and just letting them know about our services,” he said, adding they are free to businesses. “We want to help continue encouraging people to start business or grow their business,” he said.
The contract was approved as amended at their last meeting in November, including a mileage freeze and clarifying an expenditure issue.
