Lt. Gov. Spencer Cox visited Moab’s Lions Park on Thursday, Aug. 10, during the 25K Jobs Tour of rural Utah.

The tour, organized in partnership with World Trade Center Utah and 20 economic development partners, is part of Gov. Gary Herbert’s initiative to create 25,000 jobs in 25 rural counties outside the Wasatch Front over the next four years.

The tour offered attendees the chance to learn about private, public and nonprofit organizations that can help their companies, and to find out about incentives, grants and other funding opportunities for their businesses.

They also had the opportunity to meet with community leaders, and find out which companies are hiring locally.
