Public Input Wanted 4Business: Benchmarking to Be the Best for Business

County Executive Marc Elrich and Council Vice President Sidney Katz are embarking on a multi-pronged joint initiative: 4Business - Benchmarking to Be the Best for Business. The objective is to engage the local business community in a grassroots campaign to assist businesses to locate, grow and prosper in Montgomery County.

 

The first phase of 4Business is focused on the regulatory climate, including codes, the permitting process, licensing, inspections, and other issues. For those who can’t attend the hearings, comments can be submitted to 4Business@Montgomerycountymd.gov.

 

This is a great opportunity for our Chamber Members to provide input about what you need to succeed in your business and to share your experiences in locating and growing your businesses in Montgomery County.

 

Registration is not required, but appreciated. We would like to get an idea of how many GGCC members will be attending.
