The Dalton-Whitfield Economic Development Authority has asked some 20 of the county’s largest employers what they think will attract more business to the area, and the answers are starting to come in.

After receiving the completed surveys, members of the authority’s Business Advisory Council will meet with top executives with several of those firms to gather more information, probably in August.

That same month, the authority will deliver a similar survey to about 100 smaller companies, seeking their views.

During their Tuesday meeting, authority board members approved a mission statement calling for “long-term, positive economic growth by attracting new, diversified investments while supporting existing businesses.”

Authority members also approved four goals, including developing and implementing a marketing strategy for the Dalton-Whitfield County area. Authority members asked consultant Tim Chason to help them identify three to five companies that could help them develop such a marketing plan.
