Marshall-Saline Development Corporation is most recently known for its partnership with Zimmer Real Estate in an effort to determine an economic development plan for the county.

Amusingly, it has been known to staff members as "an office no one can find."

That is, until recently.

MSDC posted signage in November near the northwest corner of U.S. Highway 65 and Arrow Street. The office, located at 1455 W. Arrow St., is next to the Marshall Municipal Utilities Electrical Production Department. Pictured is Stan Moore, who assists with economic development duties at MSDC.

I agree mofireman, let's see some statistics on what they have done for the county and city, vs what expenses they have cost the tax payers including salaries.

what good is this? how many new employers have moved into our county or even city, I think the problem is marshall and saline county doesnt want to grow, keep jobs out, new employers away, I dont understand it...look at sedalia, maybe we ought to do what they do, Sedalia seems to bring in new business all the time but marshall and saline county cant bring no good jobs into our neck of the woods.
