July 28—The Chehalis City Council unanimously approved a one-year agreement with the Lewis Economic Development Council to try to boost the city’s profile and attract new businesses to town.

The agreement aims to utilize the EDC’s online marketing tools and its lead-generating contacts to recruit new businesses and industries to Chehalis. According to city documents, City Manager Merlin MacReynold and Community Development Director Dennis Osborn met EDC Executive Director Matt Matayoshi and talked to him about recruiting more businesses and discussed developing a comprehensive strategy to diversify and strengthen the city’s economic base. They also discussed collaborating on land use and regulations related to economic development. The agreement calls for a $6,000 fee from the city and is open for renewal after its expiration.
