LETTER: EDA has already held a public forum

-A A +A
By The Staff

On April 27th the Taylorsville-Spencer County Economic Development Authority, Inc., held a public forum during the regular scheduled monthly meeting.

At that meeting, Chairman Dennis Eisenback, explained that the Taylorsville-Spencer County Economic Development was asked to look at the economic impact the sale of alcohol could have on merchants in Spencer County.  And should that research conclude, that indeed, it would have an economic impact would we present those findings to the residents of Spencer County.

Our research did conclude that the sale of alcohol would attract new food and beverage businesses to our county, add revenue and increase the profit margins of our existing businesses.

This decision is not up to city officials, county officials nor EDA.  Ultimately, Spencer County voters will decide at the ballot box.  Everyone will have an opportunity to cast his or her vote, pro or con, on the issue October 20, 2009.  That is the American Way and that is how this will be decided.

Taylorsville-Spencer County Economic Development Authority, Inc., declines the invitation on October 8th, to debate the merits of alcohol.

Editor’s note: Ms. King requested that the above letter appear in the business section of the Spencer Magnet because, “the letter ... is not an opinion, rather an official statement from the Taylorsville-Spencer County Economic Development.”

The Spencer Magnet denied this request on the stance that the business section is for business news stories and not letters of official statements from organizations.
