In 1998 voters approved a dedicated sales tax to fund the Yoakum Economic Development Corporation (YEDC), a Type B municipal corporation. The YEDC promotes economic development, encourages employment, and enhances the public welfare. The Board of Directors consists of seven volunteer citizens who serve two year terms.
Yoakum’s downtown National Register District (NRD) project reaches a milestone next month when the completed historic resources survey is submitted to the Texas Historical Commission (THC).
The YEDC is the center of resources that can assist you in determining if Yoakum is right for your business, employees, and family. Contact the YEDC director for more information.
