The Albany Dougherty Economic Development Commission wants to make sure the businesses we have here stay here.
Tuesday, the EDC along with Dougherty County Commission Chairman Jeff Sinyard and Albany Mayor Willie Adams announced a new businesses retention survey.
The EDC will survey at least the top 80 industries in the county to find out their successes, challenges, and needs and what can be done to help them grow.
Sinyard said, "We need to make sure that we take our business community to another level. We have a ways to go and be the kind of community that truly says we want to be business friendly, we want to be business oriented. This is a major effort in taking us to the next level."
Existing industries and businesses create as much as 80% of all new jobs. In 2010, existing industries in Dougherty County invested more than $25 Million in the community and created more than 90 new jobs.
