Grant County EDC has New Billing Address and Email

Posted on Jan 29, 2015

The Grant County EDC has a new mailing address and email address for receiving payments and invoices. This new mailing address is:

PO Box 2359
Moses Lake, WA 98837

And the new email address is accounting@grantedc.com.

These address changes apply only to invoices and payments since our physical address is staying the same and we are not moving locations.

The reason we are making this change is because for the past three years one of Emily Braunwart's basic responsibilities at the EDC was handling the bookkeeping and accounting. This took a considerable amount of time and one of the goals of the EDC’s new Building Prosperity strategic plan was to take these administrative duties off of staff's plate so the EDC could have more time to do the “boots on the ground” economic development work of marketing Grant County as a great place to do business.

We have found a great local partner to assist us in handling our organizations bookkeeping and accounting. Duda Insurance has been in business for 4 years and will be taking on this responsibility on our behalf. Please be assured that the same high standards and financial controls that we maintained in our office will be carried on by Duda. Additionally, we will also be doing a yearly audit of the financials as an added measure to ensure that all EDC funds are being handled appropriately.

We are excited to be able to work with one of our communities small businesses to make this happen and believe this is a win-win. Our books will be kept by a professional organization with expertise in this area and EDC staff will have more time to do the work that grows the Grant County economy. This includes attending more trade shows and industry conferences, meeting directly with businesses and site selectors to share our message, and being able to engage more meaningfully with our existing businesses.

As we are just making this change there may be some short delays in invoicing or sending receipts for the first few weeks but everything will get caught up once we complete the transition.

We appreciate your continued support and look forward to continuing to work together to build prosperity throughout Grant County.
