Economic Development

Economic Development Update 1-31-24

The Economic Development sales tax has continued to serve Saline County in developing infrastructure at the junction of I-70 and US 65 Highway, as well as serving the cities within the county and unincorporated areas. The 250,000-gallon water storage tower and waterlines have reached completion, as well as the 50/50 County-MODOT turn lanes. In efforts to put money into the local entities, the Commission secured a $2 million grant, with a 20% match, for the development of the Wastewater Treatment Facility. The Welcome Center has a federal EDA match grant fund of $1.2 million, which is in the design stages, and completion is scheduled in 2025. 

 Economic Development Update 11-25-20

In 2018, the Saline County Commission was instrumental in passing a county economic development tax. The main focus of this tax money is development of the junction I-70 & Hwy 65, a major intersection in the United States. Currently, a water line is being instilled to this intersection, a 250,000 gallon water tower has been installed and completed, and a sewer for this region is being developed for installation. Turn lanes from the major roads will be installed as development takes place in this area. Additionally, income from this tax money is also being distributed to the incorporated and unincorporated areas throughout the county. This money can be used to improve their streets, sewers, and other economic improvements in their towns. Saline County is only the second county in the State of Missouri to pass an economic development tax to improve their infrastructures.
