DALEVILLE, Ala. (AP) — An Alabama city has entered into a new contract with an economic development recruitment team.

WSFA-TV reports Daleville city leaders recently approved the contract with Wiregrass Economic Development Corporation. The city and the group will map out the economic needs of the area.

Mayor Jayme Stayton says he felt like he wasn't seeing enough growth in the city. Wiregrass was a previous developer for the city and Stayton decided to rehire them.

The group recently worked with Coffee County leaders to help the town of New Brockton secure a new food distribution center - a $100 million investment.

The Chamber of Commerce hopes the partnership will fill needs in terms on industry and jobs in the area.

The new contract costs the city about $11,000 annually and starts in October.
