County officials team up to bring jobs to eastern Ky.
The southeastern Chamber of Commerce met with several county officials at an economic development luncheon in Jenny Wiley State Park. Many viewed the meeting as the first step of action for future economic development in the region. The meeting took a regional approach instead of focusing on specific counties or communities.
Officials said they are working diligently on several projects, including bringing commercial air service to Pikeville and a new federal prison in Letcher County.
