A listing of business licenses issued by the city can be found in the Legal Notices section of this newspaper. It is published monthly. The majority of these licenses are issued to individuals or small businesses that employ 2 or 3 people. Another reliable barometer of economic development is the dollar value of building permits issued, but these aren't published in the paper.

In fairness, can anyone name the 84 businesses that came to the area? How many were lost during the same period? Does a temporary business like a carnival or someone selling funnelcakes during homecoming count as one of those businesses? The truth is always in the details.

I seen on WTAP the other day, that "Eighty-four new businesses made their way to Parkersburg in 2012 and that number keeps growing." Anytime there's a new business comes in, that means more people are being employed and more B&O Tax's are being collected! So I'd say that not only is Parkersburg's mid-year revenue on track, but Parkersburg is on track, and the its future is starting to look up!
