[ARCHIVED] Montgomery Launches Business Outreach Effort

The Village of Montgomery is working to strengthen its relationship with the business community. The Village is launching a new business outreach initiative, the Business Boost, to improve communication and provide more individualized attention to local businesses.

“This item is part of a broader new community development model that includes an increased focus on economic development,” said Acting Village Administrator Jeff Zoephel. “The Village Board has directed staff members to create a more business friendly environment. We want to open communication with businesses and create an atmosphere to support current and prospective businesses.”

The Village hopes to augment the business benefits already available through the Montgomery Economic Development Corporation and the Greater Montgomery Area Chamber of Commerce and provide a local government-oriented resource for both established and new businesses.

Three tools will comprise the Village’s approach to this renewed effort. First, Business Bonding meetings will be set up between Village staff members at established businesses to address concerns and foster a positive relationship. Second, a business-focused news flash, Business Broadcast, will provide businesses with useful and relative business information from the Village. The Business Broadcast messages will be made public on the home page of the Village’s new website and give the Village an opportunity to showcase notable businesses. Third, the Village will initiate Business Breakthrough meetings with businesses that are new to the area.

Members of the community and business community can subscribe to the broadcast by logging on to the Village’s website. Businesses interested in participating in a Breakthrough or Bonding meeting can visit the Village’s website at www.ci.montgomery.il.us/businesses for more information or to sign-up. For questions about this press release, please contact Jamie Belongia at 630-896-8080 X1112.
