Plans to move forward
June 6, 2013 by Administrator
St. Joseph County officials have agreed to move forward with the idea of promoting St. Joseph County to the Chicago region.
During a work session that included all five county commissioners Wednesday, county administrator Pat Yoder said he will work with officials from 2 Fish marketing and look at steps toward developing a concrete plan.
Commissioner Don Eaton, a leading advocate for the potential marketing campaign, said he has confirmation from seven stakeholders, including at least three municipalities, a local hospital and an economic development corporation.
Yoder, however, said a proposal needs definitive wording and dollar amounts, and organizing a roster of confirmed stakeholders would be a prudent course of action.
Yoder is expected to deliver an update later in the summer after meeting with 2 Fish representatives.
