October is Manufacturing Month in Minnesota. Monticello is home to a variety of manufacturing and industrial businesses that contribute to a healthy and growing economy that benefits our community and beyond. Each year, we look forward to celebrating their hard work and perseverance over the last year at the Manufacturers Recognition Breakfast hosted by the Economic Development Authority (EDA) and Industrial & Economic Development Committee (IEDC).
