Economic development

Economic Development is provided by the Putnam County Board of Commissioners for the purpose of providing leadership in all areas of Economic Development. We support advancing, encouraging, and promoting the industrial, economic, commercial, and research development of our county.

The mission of the Commissioners is to retain, expand, and attract capital investment and jobs to Putnam County. Strategies used to implement our mission include the use and promotion of local, state, and federal; financial assistance, tax incentives, and training/technical assistance programs.
