The Plant City Economic Corporation has closed the books on its second year having accomplished much of what it set out to, according to EDC President Jake Austin.
Austin highlighted many of the EDC’s recent accomplishments, including adding $57,000 in private investments and reducing reliance on city money, in an Oct. 23 presentation to the City Commission.
The EDC was formed in late 2015 to help Plant City grow its expanding business community. The organization is a public-private venture, but is aiming to rely less on city funding, Vice-President Alyssa Cerrito said.
