Hardin County will create a new position and hire its own economic development director.

The decision was made by the Board of Supervisors, which voted unanimously Wednesday morning to advertise the position. Board Chairperson Renee McClellan said the supervisors have been planning to hire a person to undertake economic development county-wide, and they set aside money for it in the 2019-20 budget.
