Spotlight_storefront

As Mayor, I know that the Board of Trustees is committed to supporting local businesses during this unprecedented time. We know that many businesses have been hit hard by mandatory closures and safety measures required to slow the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19). Because of this, we have compiled resources and relief programs for you to turn to.

We hope you find this helpful. Thank you for your continued support. It is an honor to be your Mayor.


- Bobbi Sindelar
