A Parker Town Council work session Feb. 4 on proposed amendments to the agreement between the Town of Parker and the La Paz Economic Development Corporation led to a discussion on whether the Town should offer direction to the EDC as to what sort of developments they want them to focus on.
Some of the council members said they wanted the EDC to focus on housing and retail to improve the town’s sales tax revenue. The two council members who spoke the most on this topic were Vice Mayor Jerry Hooper and Council Member Frank Savino.
“We should make our desires know to the EDC, and ask the EDC to address those,” Savino said.
