DEWITT — DeWitt’s economy has been thriving. Its unemployment rate is 5.6 percent, 0.7 percent less than the national average, with a job growth of 2.82 percent, and a future job growth predicted to be 40 percent over the next 10 years, according to Sperling’s Best Places. Families are moving here for the city’s schools, parks and developing downtown. Part of this development is an incoming microbrewery. “We are working with a developer on locating a microbrew in the downtown; Looking Glass Brewery,” said DeWitt City Administrator Daniel Coss.
