The next regular meeting of the District III Committee has been scheduled for 3 p.m. Wednesday, Jan. 25, at the Highland Conference Center, Mitchell.

The January meeting will include our annual business items (work plan, budget, etc.) along with a presentation on USDA Rural Development (RD) program assistance. RD is actively promoting its infrastructure and community facilities resources. It may be an excellent time to include RD as a project funding alternative.

The Governor's Office of Economic Development is carefully considering a community clean-up program. Depending upon the progress, we may have more news on this subject by the meeting date. A statewide survey pointed to a significant number of structures (over 3,000) that could be impacted by a serious clean-up effort.

The January event will also serve as the annual meeting for the Areawide Business Council (ABC). ABC is our regional revolving loan fund. We will share information on where loans have been made and how much money is available to lend to local businesses.
