The Evergreen Downtown Business Association elected nine people Nov. 9 to the newly formed Economic Development Council. Fourteen people submitted their names as candidates.
The purpose of the EDC is to function as a mouthpiece for downtown businesses and provide a vehicle for accepting funds and making improvements in the absence of a town government. It is not empowered to raise taxes.
The area encompassed by the EDC includes downtown Evergreen, the offices on Meadow Drive and the commercial center at Evergreen Lake.
