Business licence numbers continue to grow in Morinville.
Currently, they're looking at a six per cent average annual growth for the licenses.
"It's great news and it's a great number. We've heard some closures along the main street of some store front businesses but Morinville does still have a vibrant business community," said Morinville mayor Barry Turner.
While there's no final stats for 2017 yet, the town claimed to be well over 500 licences in August. In 2016 the total number of business licences was 518.
