‘Select Fulton’ new economic development arm of Fulton County

In an attempt to bring more business to Fulton County, commissioners agreed Wednesday to create a new entity — “Select Fulton” — to serve as a clearinghouse for economic development opportunities countywide.

“All of us benefit if someone locates in Fulton County,” County Manager Dick Anderson said.
