Mesquite Region Economic Development (MRED) wants to thank Barbara Ellestad and the Mesquite Local News for the kind and encouraging words written on behalf of our City Council presentation on Feb. 26. We want to take this opportunity to make a revision on part of the article.

In addition to the jobs created, MRED took credit for an additional $64 million in capital investment in 2018 alone and an additional $1.2 million in local business licenses and fees, building permits, and taxes paid by new businesses.

These numbers are based off of 2018 and are not spread out over a five year period as the article stated.
