OWENSBORO, KY (WFIE) -

Owensboro is getting some recognition in Forbes Magazine.

It's been named the 6th "Best Small City for Jobs" in 2013. Officials say that's a sign that the local economy is strong and stable.

They explain that other small communities can learn from Owensboro's commitment to invest during the recession and business-friendly attitude. Economic Development Corporation CEO, Nick Brake says the ranking is a great honor.

"We're one of the only cities that consistently remains within that top-50 list," says Brake. "So top-25 straight years is an indicator of the positive direction of the economy here and some of the quality of jobs that are being created."

Brake says those jobs are in lots of different fields like health care, manufacturing, and construction.
