The Copper Corridor Economic Development Coalition recently was presented with a check for $50,000 from the Pinal County Board of Supervisors.

District 1 Supervisor Pete Rios along with Pinal County Economic Development Director Tim Kanavel were present to present the check. The CCEDC was granted this money to continue their efforts in developing a sustainable, diversified economy in Eastern Pinal County.
