Message from the Director
What do you think of Williams County?
For the first time, WEDCO hosted subcommittee meetings that included a wide variety of individuals from Williams County. Both subcommittees came to the conclusion that Williams County is missing a clear identity, and we as a community need to take an honest look at the greater Williams County Community.
WEDCO will be gathering descriptions of how people view Williams County till May. The short survey can be submitted online.
If you are interested in attending the next subcommittee meeting, please contact the WEDCO office at 419-636-8727. Members and nonmembers are welcome.
