Forming Grocery Store Steering Committee

grocery store sterring commiteeThe Mayor’s Steering committee met with Jim Crandell from UNL to review strategies used to develop Grocery stores in rural communities.

Key issues to move the project forward include the development of a Grocery Store steering committee.  This committee will meet weekly to access the needs of the community and create a strong business plan to push the project forward.  The committee will research all aspects of business development including finance, physical structure, marketing, legal issues, inventory development and employment.  If you have a strong desire to see change in the community through development of this store please contact the Village Office to volunteer steering committee or provide insight on individual issues involved with the development.
