A recent survey stated that several Midwestern states are showing signs of economic recovery in the past month, but how does that translate locally?

Carla Eysink, Executive Director of the Marion County Development Commission says no new information will be known until data is collected again at the end of the year, but says there have been signs of growth in some job sectors, as well as an overall increase in Marion County’s population; which are both positive economic signs.

Eysink adds that the economic recovery of various businesses and industries has less to do with where they’re located and more based on what they specialize in and who they serve.
