WELD COUNTY — For the fourth consecutive year, the Board of County Commissioners sent letters to about 300 companies thanking them for locating and maintaining their business in Weld County.
“This letter is a simple way to recognize the businesses in our community and to thank them for their contributions to our local economy,” said Commissioner Chairman William Garcia.
The letter reiterates the many reasons businesses locate in Weld County, including no county sales tax, no county debt and close proximity to highway and rail lines. The letter also highlights new successes within the county relating to business growth.
“Despite a rough year economically, Weld County was one of the few Colorado counties to see job growth in 2012,” the letter states. Services provided by Upstate Colorado and the Northeast East Central Colorado Small Business Development Centers are also highlighted in the letter and serve as a reminder that assistance to the business community is readily available in Weld County.
“Whether it is a large corporation or a small business, when companies succeed our economy succeeds, our towns succeed and our county succeeds. There is a beneficial ripple effect felt throughout our county when businesses thrive.” said Garcia.
The 2013 letter was sent to businesses in Weld County that employ 25 or more people.
