The Small Business Advisory Committee was established by City Council on March 1, 2021 in an effort to discuss and address issues impacting small businesses and how the City can serve as a liaison to them. The Committee consists of 15 members, including three small-business owners whose businesses are located in each of the city's four council districts. There will also be three resident members who can live in any part of the city. The city is defining the term "small business" according to the Small Business Administration's size standards, and franchise owners are allowed to serve. The Committee started meeting in August and their recommendations and work will be available on this page.
The Committee assisted the City in hosting a very successful MCTX job fair on December 15. Approximately 40 employers and 250 prospective employees participated.
The Committee will be hosting its first mixer on January 27th at the City Centre at Quail Valley- all small business owners/operators are invited to attend. To receive continued information on Small Business activities please contact Timothy Underwood at firstname.lastname@example.org
