The Moffat County Commissioners at their regular meeting yesterday decided to contract with a company that specializes in economic development and community revitalization. The company, Better City based in Ogden Utah, will initially perform a comprehensive economic assessment of Moffat County. Three companies were interviewed for the job, but the commissioners unanimously agreed that Better City was head and shoulders above the others due to the proven expertise in implementing their evaluation. Although evaluations have been done on the Moffat County economy in the past, all have fallen short in the implementation phase of the projects. Better City will include the previous evaluations in their information gathering process to provide the most effective solution to diversify the areas economy. Additionally Better City has experience working with energy dependent communities. Better City is currently working in Gunnison, Delta, Lake, and Rio Blanco counties. An article breaking down the 3 different phases of Better City’s approach to economic diversification will be available at KRAI.COM later this week.
