One of the big projects the Economic Development Office has been working on over the last several months is the shortage of single family housing available in our community. We are working with many different groups of individuals from our community including realtors, bankers, IDC board members, and contractors.
We will be holding a housing meeting with area contractors on Tuesday, May 2 at 8 am in the Community Center Building. This meeting is open to any contractors wanting to attend. If you have any questions, contact Tammy or Megan at 641-394-2437.
For any business, being able to connect with potential customers is an incredibly valuable tool. What's even more valuable is connecting with those customers at the exact moment they are searching for the products and services you offer on the internet.
