What is the LBR?


The intent of the program is to raise the awareness of the business and encourage citizens to visit the business. The program has the following characteristics: 


  • One PowerPoint slide is used (prepared by City staff, pictures provided by you, approved by business). Generally it will have the business name, location, phone, website, and either a logo or picture of the business.
  • The business representative is introduced at the podium by the staff of Economic Development & Tourism and is given 2-3 minutes (maximum) to give Council an overview of what their business sells or what their restaurant provides.
  • Optional: Business related handouts can be provided to Council / staff (approx. 10). E.g. chocolate bites for a Chocolate business, popcorn for a Popcorn business
  • Optional: Pamphlets or menus may be provided to Council (10) and/or set out on the tables at the entry to the chambers (50 +/-)
  • The presentation is taped as a part of the Council meeting and is played on the City’s cable channel for two weeks. All meetings are also available via the City’s website for review if desired and also placed on the main page of Economic Development & Tourism's website.
  • The presentations are generally between 5:30 and 6:00 p.m. at regular City Council meetings on the first Tuesday of the month at Town Hall, 1400 Main Street.
