County economic vitality forum set for April 20

The public is invited to join elected officials from townships, school districts, cities, and the county in discussing the connections between three types of businesses: farms, manufacturers and Main Street retailers, on Thursday, April 20, from 6:30 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., in the media center at Glencoe-Silver Lake High School, 1825 16th St. E, Glencoe.
University of Minnesota Extension economists Brigid Tuck and Liz Templin will share information about McLeod County’s job trends, drivers of past economic changes, and the ripple effects of job changes in the county. Local businesses also will share their challenges in today’s labor market.
“This is a great opportunity for local government officials from throughout the county to hear about the economic connections between businesses, including agriculture, in our county.  It will also give us insights into how a growth or decline in employment in one area affects other businesses,” said Joe Nagel, chair of the McLeod County Board of Commissioners.
Please RSVP on or before Monday, April 17, to Donna Rickeman at 320-864- 2363 or donna.rickeman@co.

The program is sponsored by the McLeod County Board of Commissioners.
