EDC to produce home and garden source book

Published 5:54 pm Thursday, January 12, 2012

In an effort to promote local construction trades and services, Polk County Economic Development is producing a source book for home and garden, a directory of construction, plumbing, mechanical, electrical, roofing, grading, landscaping and other allied services. The directory will be mailed to non-resident property owners to encourage the use of local businesses.
Craig Hilton, EDTC chair commented, “We are aware that we have approximately 3,000 out-of-county property owners here. We’d like to put this Source Book in their hands with the intention that when it comes time to build, remodel or repair, they will turn to Polk County building professionals first.”
Businesses that provide construction and related services are encouraged to send their business card to the EDTC office, Box 308, Columbus, NC 28722 by Jan. 30 in order to be included. There is no charge to be included.
