The Village of Godfrey will be advertising the position of Economic Development and Market Brand Director. About a year and a half ago, Godfrey hired the services of a marketing firm to help the village lure new business to town. That initiative will likely lead to the need for this position, according to village leaders.
The ultimate goal is to attract more businesses, residents and visitors to the area. Godfrey trustee Mark Stewart tells The Big Z whoever is hired will have a major responsibility updating an important document.
