Williams County Re-Activating Port Authority

The Williams County Port Author­ity is being restarted, with Bill Pep­ple des­ig­nated, by the county com­mis­sion­ers, as the new Port Author­ity Chair­man. The Williams County Port Author­ity was formed back in 2007, but has not been oper­at­ing for the past sev­eral years. A Port Author­ity is a gov­ern­men­tal entity that facil­i­tates eco­nomic activ­ity, cap­i­tal invest­ment, and job cre­ation and reten­tion. They don’t have to have access to a body of water either, despite the name. In Ohio, there are actu­ally 55 port author­i­ties statewide. In re-activating the port author­ity, Williams County Com­mis­sion­ers said, accord­ing to the Bryan Times, that the see it as a com­ple­men­tary eco­nomic devel­op­ment agency to the Williams County Eco­nomic Devel­op­ment Cor­po­ra­tion. The new direc­tor… Pep­ple, said he will also con­tinue his work as exec­u­tive direc­tor of the United Way of Williams County.
