The Traill County Economic Development Commission will try to sell the benefits of small-town life to people living in Minneapolis, Chicago and Detroit starting this summer.

One year after launching their “Come Home to Traill” campaign – which asked former residents to return to their hometowns – TCEDC board members agreed June 18 to start recruiting workers from larger metro areas to Traill County.

Jim Murphy, TCEDC’s executive director, said Traill County could appeal to residents in the Upper Midwest who have been laid off due to the new coronavirus.

“We are going to spread out and target the Minneapolis, Chicago and Detroit areas with higher unemployment and start … recruiting workforce from those markets,” Murphy told TCEDC board members. “There are jobs that are needed to be filled here.”
