A western Kentucky city plans to have a panel determine whether it can make things easier for businesses looking to locate or expand in the area.

Owensboro Mayor Ron Payne told the Messenger-Inquirer that he's heard several complaints from the business community and this is an attempt to see if there are problems and, if so, how best to address them.

Owensboro Metropolitan Planning Commission director Gary Noffsinger says the agency, which administers local planning and zoning regulations, has worked to remove impediments to developers and streamline the process.

However, he says he welcomes any opportunity to make improvements.
