City to Host Economic Development Forum

The City of Decatur in conjunction with other community partners will hold its first Economic Development Forum from 5:30-7 p.m. Thursday, July 27 in the City Council Chamber of the Decatur Civic Center.

The forum is being held to discuss current economic development activities and opportunities within the Decatur community, to provide information related to job training possibilities and employer needs and to address community questions about local economic development. The goal is to provide a broad overview of the local development process and the state of our local economy and to give residents information about resources that are available to help persons seeking employment.

The Decatur Civic Center is located at 1 Gary K. Anderson Plaza. Contact Billy Tyus at 217-424-2727 for more information.
