The Coffeyville City Commission met yesterday evening. Following the regular consent agenda, Trisha Purdon, executive director of the Montgomery County Action Council presented a quarterly report which included an update on the Economic Development Strategic Plan which is now complete as of two weeks ago.
35 jobs have been created in the county through MCAC's assistance. Purdon said Walmart has moved into the Amazon building and are optimistic of a long-term stay using the building for new technology, building displays, and training personnel. As for Tyson, the ball is now in the City of Coffeyville's court as commissioners will be looking at a site to make sure it qualifies through a site-selection process (5-minute audio).
