Local Economical impact: As the COVID-19 Pandemic drags on, our economy continues to deteriorate. On a recent KSHN.COM Party Line program, Ann Miller of the Dayton Community Development Corporation said unemployment in Liberty county is actually better than in many nearby counties. Ms. Miller said Galveston County has been hit much harder because its economy is so reliant on tourism. Ann Miller of the DCDC said realistically there some local businesses are so badly slammed they may never reopen. The DCDC is working to help local businesses navigate the many executive orders and currently is putting together information packets to help local merchants understand the rules for “retail-to-go” starting on Friday.
