A couple of months ago, representatives from LINN Energy came before the Borger EDC Board of Directors to introduce themselves and share some of their ideas for what they planned to do in the region. They were preparing to increase their presence within the Borger community, which includes the building of a new regional office.
Being a relatively new business within the Borger community, Jim Boden of LINN Energy told the EDC board during that meeting that one of the goals of the company is to be a great neighbor in the community by showing its support to local organizations and charities.
