Pro-Business Climate


Clay County has a vibrant, friendly and committed business community. The Clay County Chamber of Commerce and the Clay County Economic Development Council (EDC) work hard to promote increased prosperity by:

  • Supporting local existing business expansion by helping to remove any obstacle to growth
  • Promoting start-up enterprises and entrepreneurs
  • Recruiting and assisting relocating and expanding businesses to move to Clay County
  • Working with government and business leaders to maintain a pro-business environment

These private sector efforts are supported by the Clay County Board of County Commissioners (BCC), and Clay County appointed officials. The stated #1 priority of the BCC is "economic development."  Clay County officials work closely with new and growing businesses to help them achieve their goals.
