Lake County Business Roundtable Conducts Second Meeting

The Lake County Treasurer’s Office, along with the Board of Lake County Commissioners, welcomed a new group of local businesses, chamber representatives, and government officials to the second meeting of the “Lake County Business Roundtable Discussion Series” on Wednesday, April 6th. The roundtable discussions serve as an open forum for local businesses to share their experiences over the previous two years and provide their opinions on improving the local business environment.

In addition to the County Commissioners, representatives from various other County agencies including the Lake Development Authority, Planning, and Community Development, and Council on Aging were in attendance to answer questions and address concerns presented by the business community. Topics included but were not limited to, workforce, resource collaboration, real estate trends, and overall economic conditions.

10 local businesses, ranging from daycare to manufacturing to real estate, spoke on current concerns and issues they are experiencing given the current economy and pandemic aftereffects and they vocalized what their needs are.

“Today’s meeting was another opportunity to meet even more businesses and I continue to be impressed with the turnout we have received,” said Commission President John R. Hamercheck. “These individuals offered some invaluable input that will greatly impact the future success of other Lake County businesses.” Please click here to view the entire news release.
