Economic Development Advisory Committee

Board Responsibilities

This committee has seven members, each serving a three-year term.  Although there are no requirements for this committee, business expertise is helpful. Meeting at City Hall on an as-needed basis, as applications are submitted for review, this committee makes recommendations to the City Commission on financial applications of businesses wanting to use Revolving Loan Funds from sales tax monies earmarked for business development. Tax abatement requests from new and existing businesses and industries are also reviewed.
