New portal called ‘exciting’

Butte County supervisors learned of a spiffy new Web site Tuesday, when they were introduced to, a joint effort of the county and the Tri-County Economic Development Corp. that was developed by Chabin Concepts, whose president, Audrey Taylor, presented it to the board.

The site is designed to serve as the informational hub for businesses interested in relocating to the county, homegrown start-ups and existing businesses looking to grow or remain strong. Simple and clear to use, it has links to a wide range of business service providers and government agencies, as well as a page of “success stories” designed to illustrate how local businesses have utilized available services.

“This is exciting,” Supervisor Kim Yamaguchi gushed, and the rest of the supervisors agreed.
