THE MARTIN COUNTY ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT AUTHORITY MET MONDAY AT THE COUNTY COURTHOUSE. ONE OF THE FIRST TOPICS OF DISCUSSION WAS DEVELOPING A PROGRAM TO OBTAIN LEADS IN THE RECRUITMENT OF POTENTIAL BUSINESSES LOOKING TO RELOCATE IN MARTIN COUNTY. THE PROGRAM WAS DUBBED "HEAD HUNTER" - WITH PAY SUGGESTED AT $100 DOLLARS - TO GO TO ANYONE WHO GAVE THE AUTHORITY A VALID REFERRAL FOR A BUSINESS SEEKING TO SET UP SHOP IN THE COUNTY.

E D A MEMBER STEVE FOSNESS SUGGESTED "WANTED" POSTERS MADE VISIBLE IN THE COUNTY TO PROMOTE THE PROGRAM. AUTHORITY MEMBERS THOUGH IT WAS A GOOD IDEA BUT WOULD NEED TIME TO SET UP PARAMETERS, GUIDELINES AS TO WHAT A VIABLE CONTACT OR VALID REFERRAL WOULD CONSIST OF BEFORE IMPLEMENTING.

THE E D A WAS UPDATED ON THE BORDER TO BORDER GRANT COUNTY WIDE BROADBAND PROJECT AND THAT FRONTIER COMMUNICATIONS WAS AT 40% COMPLETION AND WAS EXPECTING WRAP UP THE PROJECT IN JUNE OF THIS YEAR. COUNTY COORDINATOR SCOTT HIGGINS SAYS THEY WERE AT THE INSTALL PHASE RIGHT NOW WITH CONNECTIONS YET TO BE MADE. HIGGINS INFORMED THE AUTHORITY OF REGION 9 DEVELOPMENT COMMISSION'S INVITATION TO THEIR RURAL BROADBAND SUMMIT COMING UP ON APRIL 5TH THIS YEAR TO ACCESS THE CHALLENGES, SHARE SUCCESS STORIES AND IDENTIFY ACTION STEPS IN THE FUTURE.

THE M C E D A TABLED ANY ACTION ON RENEWAL OF THEIR RADIO PROGRAMMING UNTIL THE NEXT MEETING. THEY DID APPROVE FORWARDING A RECOMMENDATION TO THE FULL MARTIN COUNTY BOARD FOR APPROVAL TO ADD TIM TERFEHR TO THE AUTHORITY BOARD.
