Emmett Charter Township Signs on to Support Economic Development
Michigan Economic Development Corporation President and CEO James C. Epolito today announced that the MEDC has signed a cooperation agreement with Emmett Charter Township near Battle Creek. The MEDC now has signed partnerships with 123 economic development organizations, communities and businesses across the state with the goal of encouraging collaboration to promote economic development and create jobs.
The MEDC was created in 1999 by an Interlocal Agreement executed by local economic development corporations created under Public Act 338 of 1974.
Other economic development agencies that also work very closely in partnership with the MEDC include local agencies, utilities and business organizations that are not incorporated under Public Act 338.
