Now for a local econ development report...

Mohave County has an economic development department, and editor Ric Swats sat down with the deputy director for some interesting discussion.

Read it all here... and I like this quote the best...

The downturn in the economy is a difficult thing to live with, Peterson said, but it is also a time to act to take advantage of the situation.

“There is a ton of opportunity right now,” Peterson said. “We’ve see a lot of prospects we thought we’d lost to other higher-cost areas come back and take another look at Mohave County. They see an advantage to our lower costs.

“We compete as a low-cost provider. In times of economic decline those areas of the country that are low cost providers see the most benefit.”
