Possible Howard County merger raises doubts

April 10, 2008

Business and government officials in Howard County want to consolidate seven economic development groups in the area under one organizational structure.

However, the Kokomo Tribune reports, some county commissioners are worried doing so will only create another bureaucratic layer.

The seven groups include Inventrek, Kokomo-Howard County Chamber of Commerce, Kokomo-Howard County Development Corp., Urban Enterprise Association, Kokomo Downtown Association, Howard County and city of Kokomo.

All employees would continue to work in their current jobs.

No details about when or if the idea would be voted on were provided.
