Rock County shows signs of economic improvement



More signs of economic recovery for Rock County. The latest quarterly report for local economic indicators is out and Rock County Economic Development Manager James Otterstein says they're moving in the right direction. Areas measured by the "Rock Ready Index" include workforce, real estate, sales activity, and even electricity usage. The latest "Rock Ready Index" may ease the fears of some who thought the Janesville-Beloit area would take forever to recover from the "Great Recession" and the loss of General Motors. Otterstein goes so far as to say there may be a collective sigh of relief. The greatest areas of recent improvement may include job postings and home sales prices.
