Winter Haven, FL -- Winter Haven business leaders and city officials have announced the formation of an Economic Development Council.
Angeleu Economics, economic development consultants, recommended an EDC for the City of Winter Haven to help create jobs, expand the city's tax base, attract new businesses and promote the expansion of existing businesses within the Winter Haven area.
"We've identified target industries best suited for recruitment to and expansion in the Winter Haven area, such as medical services; software and information technology; and logistics and distribution facilities," Ingram Leedy, President/CEO of Elephant Outlook and Chairman of the Transition Team heading up the EDC effort said in a release.
