The explosion of Grimes County growth in recent years has culminated into stretching the Chamber of Commerce a bit thin.
Executive Director Johnny McNally presented Wednesday their annual economic services agreement between the county and chamber, and says that it has brought newfound growth to the area, but loads more work for his two person office.
“Our membership has grown 50% since 2016, and the activity on the Economic Development side has grown about that size too,” said McNally. “The board recognizes that, and are taking steps to possibly bring on an additional employee to even the work load, and allow chamber members to feel they are being accommodated, and their needs for business retention and expansion are being met.”
McNally said as well he has shown property for sale to two interested investors in the last week.
Commissioner’s renewed the annual economic services agreement, which has remained unchanged since 2016.
