Economic Summit held in Eau Claire to talk job creation


Eau Claire (WQOW) - A meeting of the minds is held in Eau Claire to talk job creation.

Wednesday night, the city held its first economic development summit. Local business leaders, government members and others discussed what can be done to create more jobs. They talked about developing a more educated workforce, attracting entrepreneurs to the city and having land ready and available for development.

"We do a three-year economic development policy, and this is what the council will adopt for the next three years to kind of follow as their economic development priorities, so we wanted businesses and stakeholder input into that as they continue to develop a draft that they will then take to the full city council for adoption," says Eau Claire Economic Development Director Mike Schatz.

That process will most likely be completed over the next few weeks.
