Macon County EDC November 2011 Meeting

The Macon County EDV met on Tuesday, November 15, 2011 and heard a series of reports from the new EDC Director Tommy Jenkins. It sounds like he has hit the ground running and takes his position very seriously.

A reporter from The Franklin Press and myself were the only members of the media present at this meeting.

Here is the video I took of the meeting and associated meeting documents that were shared by the new EDC Director:
