Butler County Commission for Economic Development
The Butler County Commission for Economic Development (BCCED) mission is to create good quality jobs in the county, by working with existing industries to expand or the recruitment of prospective new industries/distribution facilities/service establishments/etc. to the area. In working with either existing or new industries, we make sure that they fully benefit from all incentives or programs they choose to take advantage of.
The plans to develop additional publicly held and controlled "industrial development property" will only increase the potential to have more companies consider this county. We must start and maintain an active program to build speculative buildings. Over 70% of the projects that inquire with the State of Alabama are looking for existing buildings. Plans to acquire as much grant money as possible for these projects have already been implemented. We do not need to let these great opportunities pass by in Butler County.
Many changes have taken place in the "economic development area", but it still remains a very people oriented process. The networks created locally and statewide will bring about increased activity. We are proud to have a very pro-active economic development governor. Many organizations exist locally that promote and encourage job growth, such as the Butler County Manufacturers Association, the Butler County Human Resource Managers Association, the Greenville Area Chamber of Commerce, the Butler County Industrial Development Authority, the Greenville Industrial Development Board and most of all the Butler County Commission for Economic Development.
The public and private investors of the BCCED deserve your thanks and praise for investing in the promotion of Butler County. Among this group are all three municipalities, the county government, all banks, both electric providers, the telephone company, the gas company, the BCIDA, the county water authority and both local hospitals.
