FRONT ROYAL – A long-time employee with the Front Royal-Warren County Economic Development Authority steps down next month.

Director of Marketing and Business Development Marla Taylor Jones retires effective Oct. 1, the EDA announced Friday. At this point, the EDA does not plan to fill the vacant position. Executive Director Jennifer McDonald said she and Jones worked together at the EDA for 20 years and watched the community grow and prosper through the authority’s work.
