The Department of Economic Development is the economic and business development arm of the City of LaSalle. The mission of the department is to advance the collective interests of the citizens of LaSalle by promoting economic opportunities and influence long-term responsible and sustainable development.
Economic Development is the process by which local people build organizations and partnerships that interconnect profitable businesses with skills, education, and investment. In addition, the responsibility of the Department is to search and secure government funding for public infrastructure improvements. The financial support enables the City of La Salle to accelerate the replacement of aging water and sewer lines which creates efficiency in these systems.
Businesses seeking information on city incentives, Tax Increment Financing Districts, Enterprise Zones, and industrial, commercial, and retail real estate locations should contact Leah Inman, Economic Development Director at (815) 488-4442 or L.firstname.lastname@example.org.
