Murfreesboro's First Presbyterian Church is doing a series on "communinity involvement" on Wednesday evening.
On Wednesday night (8/17/2017) Rutherford County Chamber of Commerce Vice President of Economic Development Brian Hercules told those in attendance that proof of success for local business is found in the sales tax totals released by the state.
He said . . .
Hercules emphasized that local retail sales are ahead of Hamilton, Williamson and Wilson County. Only Davidson, Shelby and Knox counties are ahead of Rutherford County.
He was asked what do figures like the $7.1-billion in retail sales for 2016 tell corporations who are considering moving to Rutherford County?
