Coming Wednesday: Leelanau shuns economic partnership

— TRAVERSE CITY — A plan to create jobs in Leelanau County is dead, as is a long-time public board tasked with fostering economic development there.

Leelanau County's Board of Commissioners this week voted to reject a partnership with the Traverse Bay Economic Development Corp. to develop a long-term strategy for creating jobs in the county. Commissioners also voted to disband the county’s Economic Development Board during the same discussion.
