Peoria officials are working together to attract a new call center business to the city. Mark Rothert is assistant Peoria County Administrator for Economic Development. He says the company would create about 200 jobs if it locates in the area.
"Right now, immediately, if the company were to expand into Peoria, they could fill about 50 jobs immediately. So, with that potential of 200 jobs, this is a good project to be working on to help spur on our economic development," says Rothert.
