MOUNT PLEASANT, SC (August 4, 2015) – The Town of Mount Pleasant recently hosted its third monthly business outreach meeting at Mount Pleasant Chevrolet. Mount Pleasant Mayor Linda Page, Councilmembers Mark Smith and Ken Glasson, along with Town Administrator Eric DeMoura, Assistant Town Administrator Katherine Hendricks and Government Outreach Officer Lauren Sims met with Operating Partner and Owner Joe Sarro, Sales Manager Joe Momin, Service Manager Wayne Goss, Fixed Ops Sean Shaw, Office Manager Stacey Kluenie, Finance Manager Bernard Tolton and VIP Program Director/Public Relations Treg Monty.
“The business outreach meetings, spearheaded by the Economic Development Committee and Councilmember Mark Smith, are a great way to connect with local businesses, exchange information, understand the challenges and opportunities our local businesses face, and strengthen community relationships,” said Mayor Page. “The meetings are informal roundtable discussions where business owners and their staff have an opportunity to discuss topics important to them with their elected officials.”
The group discussed tree protection and site planning, commuting employees, business visibility, bid and procurement process, corporate sponsorship opportunities and Mount Pleasant Chevrolet’s VIP Program, a pressure-free, money-saving experience in purchasing a car.
The Business Outreach Meetings are part of the town wide Government Outreach and Engagement Strategy. The Government Outreach Office works with various Town departments, citizens, neighborhood associations, civic groups, faith organizations, business leaders, and non-profit entities to create community-wide conversations and foster collaborative partnerships that will lead to strong community relationships, a shared common identity, and a more engaged community.
