Hancock County to Get Economic Developer

Carthage, IL – The Extension Service in Hancock County has been without a Community Economic Development Educator since January. Deb Pflasterer with the Extension Service says a search committee is looking for someone who can work with businesses and local governments. It also wants someone who can cooperate with other development staffers in the county. She says the county position should complement the work of others and there should be no overlap. Four candidates are scheduled to be interviewed Monday. Pflasterer says a choice could be announced by mid-month.
