Column: From the desk of Planning and Development

by Greg Hofmann, Director of Planning and Development

An Economic Development Coordinator was hired October 1st and we welcome Schaun Goodeve to the Planning & Development Department. Schaun has been meeting with businesses and stakeholders and one of his recent accomplishments has been the launch of a business, retention and expansion program.

“Morinville Biz Pulse” – An important initial step in our business, retention and expansion program is to establish an economic development baseline. To this end, a survey of Morinville businesses is currently being conducted. For more information contact Schaun Goodeve, Town of Morinville at sgoodeve@morinville.ca or call 780-939-7622.

Business License Reminder

A reminder to all current 2013 licence holders, your licence will be expiring on December 31, 2013. You will be receiving a renewal letter in the near future for your 2014 Business Licence. An important value-add to this year’s business license program is the creation of an online business directory on the Town’s website. This will provide high-ranking online marketing exposure. The online directory will be a major benefit to home-based businesses and smaller operations with limited marketing budgets.
