Finney County Economic Development Corp. President Eric Depperschmidt discusses the recent increases in budget requests at both the city and county level for the economic development organization.

The group, which was developed by Garden City, Finney County, Holcomb and Garden City Community College, has requested a $631,000 increase in combined funding; from $214,000 to a requested $845,000 for 2011.

According to Depperschmidt, in the past four years the organization has helped create 429 jobs, helped 517 local businesses expand and helped bring in $108 million in capital investment dollars to the area.

Voters have voted twice against proposed sales tax increases to more permanently fund economic development for the area.

Below are links to related Telegram stories as well as two Telegram editorials and a column written by Depperschmidt regarding the budget request.
