The Jacksonville Regional Economic Development Corporation (JREDC) awarded Westermeyer Industries with the 2018 Harold Cox Industry of the Year Award during its Annual Investors Meeting held February 21 at the Jacksonville Country Club. The JREDC also recognized the City of Jacksonville’s Parks and Lakes department with the 2018 Champion Award for two new hiking trails developed on the south side of Lake Jacksonville. Snaking through 1.5 miles of timber, the two trails – named Crimson and Rocket – are located on South Lake Road between Starlite Campers Club and the Oak Grove Boy Scout area. Illinois Retail Merchants Association (IRMA) President and CEO Rob Karr served as the keynote speaker during the annual meeting. His comments focused on the state’s current business climate, specifically the minimum wage increase signed into law this week by Governor Pritzker. Karr advocated on behalf of IRMA membership for a compromise in the original legislation which would have allowed for a tiered minimum wage hike to reflect the economic diversity of the state. The mission of the JREDC is to create, expand, recruit and retain job opportunities for Morgan and Scott counties. The investor-based group traces its beginnings to 1964 when the Jacksonville Area Industrial Corporation was formed with the objective of creating jobs by acquiring new industries and assisting the growth of existing industries.
