Economic growth in a recession

leave a comment »

KNLV radio has the scoop:

Ord and Valley County are bucking the economic trend of not only the nation but even the state of Nebraska. Valley County and Ord’s net taxable sales are showing strong growth in 2009 over 2008.

From January-July 2008 compared to the same seven months in 2009, Valley County net taxable sales increased nearly $1.4 million, or 6.56%. During the same time frame, Nebraska ‘s net  taxable sales decreased by 2.55%.

We released some of this information in our latest newsletter, here.   Contrast that news with the recent letter from state Senator Kate Sullivan on knlvradio.com.  It’s comforting to see economic vitality in the midst of such peril countrywide.   Great news for our area indeed!
