Founded in 2003, the Montgomery Economic Development Corporation (“MEDC”) is a non-profit organization that assists businesses and business interests in the community. The corporation is funded by the Village of Montgomery, taxing bodies and local businesses that desire to be involved in their community’s economic development, stability, expansion, and diversification. A list of supporting members can be found under the membership web page.
Through this funding, the MEDC is able to provide encouragement, positive direction, and a wealth of information that ultimately improves the local business atmosphere and promotes the Village in a positive light. The community benefits through increased employment opportunities, business expansion, and awareness. By attracting and retaining businesses, The MEDC also generates additional tax revenue for the Village, through real estate and development along with marketing for the business community which benefits the entire community.
