City leaders from Moreno Valley proudly accepted the City's designation as Public Partner of the Year from the Inland Empire Economic Partnership (IEEP). The recognition was presented at the organization's annual dinner on Jan. 16.

Moreno Valley, Riverside County's second-largest City, was chosen for the IEEP honor in recognition of its successful efforts to attract and support business development and job creation.

Moreno Valley has created 20,000 new local jobs in the past six years and its employment rate stands at 96 percent.

“The Board of Directors of the Inland Empire Economic Partnership are pleased to honor the City of Moreno Valley as the Public Partner of the Year," said IEEP President and CEO Paul Granillo. "The City of Moreno Valley continues to be a leader in business attraction and workforce development. This award acknowledges the leadership of the City Council and staff for their hard work and continued partnership with the greater Inland Empire.”

"We are proud of the work we continue to do to make Moreno Valley a great place to live, work, raise a family and retire," said Dr. Yxstian Gutierrez, Mayor of Moreno Valley. "It's an honor to accept this award on behalf of our Council, our outstanding City staff and our many community partners."
