SOUTH WHITLEY â€” As the town of South Whitley progresses with its Whitley On The Move initiative, partnerships with agencies such as the Whitley County Economic Development Corporation are vital.
Alan Tio, president of the EDC, was present at last weekâ€™s town council meeting to share with South Whitleyâ€™s leaders how his corporation could benefit the townâ€™s desire to grow.
â€śWe can work together to get a lot of things done,â€ť Tio said. â€śWe are learning from other cities, such as Wabash and Angola, to see what has worked for them.â€ť
One tangible element the EDC can offer the town are resources needed for South Whitley to obtain grants and other funds for its redevelopment.
â€śIt seems like we should talk more about this,â€ť said Town Council President Tony Starkey. â€śYou have the people we need to help us with assessments and studies. These are the types of reports we need to go forward with a lot of our ideas.â€ť
