New Economic Development Board Meets
Thursday, 28 June 2012 05:18
The newly appointed Valentine Economic Development Board met last evening for their first meeting since the appointment by the city council on June 14th. Most of the meeting was devoted to background information on what the economic development program was all about and what has transpired in the past 6 years of its existence. There has not been an Economic Development Board since the inter local agreement with Cherry County was dissolved in June of 2011. The new board elected Naedean Allard as president and Steve Kerr as Vice-President. Other board members are Billie Tinant, Andrew Johnson and Luke Moser. The board also voted to retain Mike Burge as Director and Kari Shaffer as assistant on a part time basis to keep programs moving forward. The next Economic Development Board meeting will be at 6pm on July 23rd at the Valentine Library.
